What Works Centre for Crime Reduction

Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.

The government has selected the College of Policing to host the What Works Centre for Crime Reduction - part of a world-leading network of centres providing robust, comprehensive evidence to guide public spending decisions.

The What Works Centre for Crime Reduction is working to:

  • review research on practices and interventions to reduce crime
  • label the evidence base in terms of quality, cost and impact
  • provide Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) and other crime reduction stakeholders with the knowledge, tools and guidance to help them target their resources more effectively.

It is being led by a core team from the College of Policing, and supported by a "commissioned partnership programme" including Cardiff University and the Universities’ Police Science Institute, and has been jointly funded by the College and the Economic and Social Research Council.
