Evidence-Based Crime Reduction Strategies for Small, Rural, and Tribal Agencies   [open pdf - 9MB]

From the Introduction: "This guide provides evidence-based policing practices (EBPP) for small, rural, and tribal agencies. The information comes from published research studies and working group conversations with command staff from various small, rural, and tribal agencies. [...] This guide provides small, rural, and tribal agencies with innovative and creative ways to incorporate EBPPs into their operations. We present information and case studies on EBPPs that have been evaluated and demonstrated successful outcomes as well as additional tips, ideas, and promising strategies identified in published studies and conversations with law enforcement leaders. The guide is divided into three sections: 1. Practices that 'maximize the strengths' of small, rural, or tribal agencies, such as community-police engagement and peacemaking 2. Practices that 'address common needs' and challenges of small, rural, or tribal agencies, such as hot spots policing strategies that maximize efficiency when resources are limited 3. Problem-oriented practices that 'address common problems' identified in small, rural, or tribal agencies, including substance use, traffic offenses, and property crime[.]"
