Research conducted in the Police Research Lab explores how psychology can contribute to various police activities. Three lines of research are currently being focused on in the lab: (1) issues related to police use of force (e.g., use of force training; factors influencing decision making and performance in use of force incidents; memory for use of force events; the role of body worn cameras in policing; etc.); (2) the reliability, validity, and/or usefulness of psychologically-based investigative techniques (e.g., methods used to link serial crimes; crime scene analysis; geographic profiling; etc.); and (3) evidence based policing (e.g., receptivity to research among police professionals; the importance of replication and reproduction studies for evidence based policing; open science in policing; etc.). Please check out the lab website for more details.
