About the Project
- Funded by U.S. Department of State through the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
- Goal is to convey evidence-based practices in policing to selected police executives from other countries.
- Initial focus is on several police executives from Morocco who have been selected by the national police force there to participate in this executive development program.
- Specific topical areas selected in consultation with Morocco, but include principles of democratic policing and the scientific basis of police forensics.
- Selected Moroccan police executives will visit Penn State during May-June 2013 to participate in this project. Project is being led by the Justice and Safety Institute, with cooperation from the Justice Center for Research and other centers on campus.
- Project is intended to promote the expansion of evidence-based policing trans-nationally, and to build partnerships with police agencies in other nations.
