The logic model shows how to think critically about the links between a problem, intervention and measures of success. This can show how and why the intervention might work. It can also help you show the potential value of your project to others.
The policing evaluation toolkit includes evaluation design and implementation strategies. These can be used by practitioners and researchers to make sure that evaluations are designed well and enable strong statements of causal impact.
The toolkit can help you to:
assess whether an intervention is effective and the strength of its impact
identify the most effective practices and guide future decisions
We have also developed project review checklists. If you don't have research training, the checklists can help you to effectively evaluate a project specification or bid.
