Smart Policing Initiative: A Strategic Approach

The Smart Policing Initiative (SPI) is a Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA)-sponsored initiative that supports law enforcement agencies in building evidence-based, data-driven law enforcement tactics and strategies that are effective, efficient and economical. SPI represents a strategic approach aimed at bringing more science into day-to-day operations by leveraging innovative practices in analysis, technology and evidence-based practices. The initiative’s goal is to improve policing performance and effectiveness while containing costs. To date, 33 local law enforcement agencies have received SPI grants to work with research partners to develop and document solutions, best practices and lessons learned.
