What Works Centre for Crime Reduction

What Works Centre for Crime Reduction

The government has selected the College of Policing to host the What Works Centre for Crime Reduction - part of a world-leading network of centres providing robust, comprehensive evidence to guide public spending decisions.

The What Works Centre for Crime Reduction is working to:

  • review research on practices and interventions to reduce crime
  • label the evidence base in terms of quality, cost and impact
  • provide Police and Crime Commissioners and other crime reduction stakeholders with the knowledge, tools and guidance to help them target their resources more effectively.

It is being led by a core team from the College of Policing, and supported by a "commissioned partnership programme" including Cardiff University and the Universities’ Police Science Institute, and has been jointly funded by the College and the Economic and Social Research Council.
