Here it is!  We are going Back to the Future!  Well, we're looking back in history in order to look ahead into the future and take with us the principles of the Father of Policing, Sir Robert Peel.  These core values and his principles can guide us towards a better vision on what policing should have remained as.  We have some catching up to do since we derailed the community involved aspect of policing along with the idea that reducing crime (thus reducing our victims) is the goal.Links:NIRO Knowledge Episode 1.7 video versionSir Robert Peel's PrinciplesDr Cynthia Lum NIRO Knowledge episode --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:

Reinventing American policing was the topic of Dr Cynthia Lum's broadcast with George Mason University on Monday 2/22.  It is a topic that needs to be addressed and is demanded to be addressed in American policing today.  I talk about her presentation and how I believe analysts can be the momentum for growth and change in the policing culture to progress to being integrated with our communities.  I also bring actionable analyses, an open mind approach by analysts towards the problems and the strategic solve, and the big change Ithaca NY is looking to implement with their police department.  And of course, join the NIRO Crime Analysis Slack group if you are an analyst, academic or pracademic looking to connect and share knowledge with people around the globe.Links:Episode 1.4 video versionNIRO Crime Analysis membershipTop 5 Analytical Tools for 2021 webinar (FREE)Dr Cynthia Lum on NIRO KnowledgeIthaca NY articleNIRO Crime Analysis Slack Invite --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
