SPI is pleased to announce the release of the Smart Policing Collaboration Principles document. This product provides a high-level overview of collaboration principles developed by SPI in cooperation with the BJA Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) program and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS). These partners conducted a series of three workshops over the past year examining challenges and successes in police-community collaboration. This document represents the integration of ideas generated at all three workshops in a series of Collaboration Principles, fundamental guidelines for how local jurisdictions (police agencies and communities alike) should approach police-community collaboration.
You can read this document on the SPI website here.
BJA Smart Suite Fellows Academy
The Smart Suite Researcher-Practitioner Fellows Academy is a week-long opportunity for researchers and law enforcement practitioners to develop an actively engaged network of researcher-practitioner partnerships. The Academy will take place from February 7-10, 2017 in Denver, CO and will aim to do the following: build capacity for identifying and responding to emerging and chronic crime problems, analysis of these problems, linking strategies to research-based practice, and developing a culture of experimentation to further develop and sustain evidence-based practice.

For more information, please visit the Academy page on Michigan State University's website.
