Evidence-based policing maturity model

Understand how well your force is integrating evidence-based policing.

The evidence-based policing (EBP) maturity model is a self-assessment tool. It can be used to assess how well your force is integrating EBP.

The tool can help your force to:

  • identify the activities and behaviours that need to be developed
  • embed EBP into everyday policing practice
  • track and review progress

The model uses a numbered ranking system to assess the maturity of evidence across four areas – culture, capability, structure and strategy. It supports forces in progressing towards the National Police Chiefs' Council's (NPCC) Policing Vision 2025.

For more information or support using the maturity model, contact whatworks@college.police.uk.
