Increasing Police Innovation and Effectiveness in Latin America and the Caribbean
The main aim of this TC is to support institutional effectiveness and capacity building among police in LAC by producing a practical guide on the success of different policing reforms and strategies. This "go-to-reference" guide will be unique as it will be the first one to build cross-country comparable data and systematic evidence in the region. As such, it will serve as practical tool, to distill and translate common lessons from the highest quality evidence, for police agencies in the region, many of which have demanded advice on how best to implement reforms. To achieve this goal, the intermediate objectives are to: i) objectively define the quality of police forces in the region: officer profile, how officers are trained, recruited and paid; ii) characterize a coherent typology of various police reforms that have taken place in the region and trace any evidence of impact ; iii) consolidate the regional evidence-base on what policing strategies have proven effective to reduce crime and increase trust in the police; and iv) develop a foundation for future work in areas of persistent knowledge gaps which are of great interest to police in the region (i.e. use of technology and digital solutions, criminal investigation, police oversight and accountability mechanisms).
