About the Author

Johannes Knutsson is Professor of Police Research at the Norwegian Police University College. He has been employed at the Swedish National Police Academy and the Swedish National Police Board. He has conducted studies with and for the police for 40 years. Among other publications he has coedited several books on different aspects of policing - Putting Theory to Work: Implementing situational prevention and problem-oriented policing (with Ron Clarke), Evaluating Crime Reduction Initiatives (with Nick Tilley), Police Use of Force: A global perspective (with Joseph Kuhns), Preventing Crowd Violence (with Tamara Madensen) and Applied Police Research: Challenges and opportunities (with Ella Cockbain). Lisa Tompson is a Lecturer at the UCL Department of Security and Crime Science. As a former police crime intelligence analyst, her work focuses on research which has immediate relevance and benefit to police and crime reduction agencies. She has recently worked on research that underpins the UK's What Works Centre for Crime Reduction, for which she and the team won a Chief Constable's commendation in 2015.


"Recent years have seen the idea of `evidence-based policing' really take hold in America, Europe and beyond. Yet institutional, political and cultural barriers remain, and some of the underpinning intellectual ideas continue to be contested. Advances in Evidence Based Policing couldn't be more timely therefore. With a truly stellar cast of authors, the volume offers a wonderfully comprehensive, reflexive, engaged and up-to-date exploration of the field. For anyone concerned with the future of policing this book will be absolutely essential."

- Tim Newburn, Professor of Criminology and Social Policy, Department of Social Policy, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK"Amidst the confusion of an increasingly demanding environment, EBP has emerged as a new paradigm that has enthused police leaders and policy makers alike. This book corrals internationally renowned academics to provide their unique perspectives on this dominant topic. The result is a stimulating and engaging book that delivers at many levels. Whilst exploring what evidence matters and how it should be applied, it extends to provide a fresh lens through which to explore the ongoing relationship between academia and the police. For practitioners, academics, or those just interested in policing, it provides fascinating insight during this distinctive period of development."- Stuart Kirby, Professor of Policing and Criminal Investigation, School of Forensic and Applied Sciences, University of Central Lancashire, UK "...the EBP movement is now entering its 20th year since Sherman put evidence in play. While there has been considerable critique of these issues over this period, Johannes Knutsson and Lisa Tompson, editors of Advances in Evidence-Based Policing, together with a notable array of social and crime scientists, parse the achievements and blind-spots in the EBP movement... the book is a solid, and appropriately critical assessment of the state-of-the art of EBP and pathways for its improvement. It is also a critique of some of the shortcomings of EBP conceptually, methodologically and pragmatically." - Jack R. Greene, Professor Emeritus, School of Criminal Justice and Criminology, Northeastern University, USA
