Routledge is proud to publish leading research on policing and law enforcement. Including innovative evidence-based, theoretical, ethnographic, and historical approaches, and drawing on key topics of research including accountability, policing hate crime, stop and search, policing cities and police-citizen relations, Routledge is committed to publishing the best of international policing research. We are set on developing this trend with the establishment of a brand new series: Routledge Innovations in Policing

Policing Titles

Routledge Innovations in Policing

The Routledge Innovations in Policing series explores innovations in the field of policing and offers the latest insight into the field through research, theoretical applications, case studies, and evaluations. Famous innovations developed over the course of the late twentieth century and into the turn of the twenty-first include approaches such as community policing, "broken windows" policing, problem-oriented policing, "pulling levers" policing, third-party policing, hot spots policing, CompStat, and evidence-based policing. Some of these approaches have been successful, and some have not, while new innovations continue to arise. Improving police performance through innovation is often not straightforward. 

Police departments are highly resistant to change, but through such research we expect to find further refinement of our knowledge of "what works" in policing, under what circumstances particular strategies may work, and why these strategies are effective in improving police performance.
