I’m excited to announce that we’re officially starting to plan for the 6th annual conference of the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing and we’re looking for passionate folks who want to share the work they’re doing to advance public safety. The call for abstracts has just come out so if you’ve got work or ideas to share, think about submitting early. If you’ve never attended an ASEBP conference before, you’re missing out on a truly great opportunity to meet some of the most thoughtful and impactful people working in the criminal justice system today. Police officers, researchers, policymakers, and community advocates come together in a space where ideas are exchanged and assumptions are challenged. For police officers and leaders, this is a unique opportunity to hear directly from some of the leading researchers in the field and to then have a chance to pick their brain, usually over a drink at the end of the day. For researcher and policy wonks, you can hear directly from the folks that your work will impact, flesh out ideas in a safe environment, and get real world feedback from cops who understand the necessity for experimentation but can tether ideas to the difficult practical nature of operational policing. This conference has been steadily growing over the past 6 years but is still small enough that everyone comes away with ideas, connections, and frequently friendships that build. If you’re a twitter fan, check out the hashtag #ASEBP2021 to check out some of the presentations from this year’s conference and then start planning a trip to Washington, D.C. for May of next year.
