Effects of Training and Technology on Problem Oriented Policing

Services: Analytical studies, Program evaluation

Research Areas: Criminal Justice, Public Safety

The Indiana State Police (ISP) contracted with the Center to conduct an assessment of the effects of training and technology on the introduction of Problem Oriented Policing (POP).

The ISP obtained an Advancing Community Policing Grant from the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office of the U.S. Justice Department to be used for internal organizational change. In this case, the “change” would involve an organized training effort to introduce POP to ISP personnel, and the acquisition of mobile computer technology known as Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) that would be provided to POP officers. In turn, the grant required an evaluation component to help the ISP assess the relative impacts of its training initiative and the use of CDPD technology by POP officers.
