Problem-Specific Guides

The Problem-Specific Guides for Police summarize knowledge about how police can reduce the harm caused by specific crime and disorder problems.

Anonymous Peer Review: Each guide is informed by a thorough review of the research literature and reported police practice, and each guide is anonymously peer-reviewed by a line police officer, a police executive and a researcher prior to publication. The review process is independently managed by the COPS Office, which solicits the reviews.

These guides are web versions of the guides with links to many additional resources designed to be read on-line.
These are shorter printed versions of the guides for easy download and printing.
These guides are formatted for all E-book readers (Kindle, Nook etc.)
