    The Cambridge Journal of Evidence-Based Policing aims to further empirical research for and about policing internationally. "Evidence-Based Policing" is the systematic practice of applying research to decision-making in policing. It refers to both the body of research that can be applied to policing practice, as well as the body of research about how to apply it (in a wide range of tactical, organizational, financial, and political contexts).

    The journal will publish original research and review articles in three main areas:

    Targeting: Identifying priorities for resources based on concentrations of crime (including time, day, season, area, persons, situations, and crime types)

    Testing: Examining police practices through randomized controlled trials, systematic quantitative and narrative reviews, algorithmic forecasting, meta-analyses, qualitative case studies, and other methods, in order to decide what practices to deploy in police operations.

    Tracking: Monitoring the nature and whereabouts of police actions for hourly, daily, weekly or longer time periods, in relation to measured outcomes for police objectives, to decide whether policies and practices are being implemented adequately.
