The interactive toolkit provides access to the crime reduction evidence base, enabling users to weigh up evidence on the impact, cost and implementation of various interventions. Users can filter and sort interventions, drill down into more detail and pin them so they are highlighted on future visits to the site. Using a ranking framework known as EMMIE, users to able to summarise each interventions impact on crime (Effect), how it works (Mechanism), where it works (Moderators), how to implement (Implementation) and what it costs (Economic), allowing the evidence to be used most effectively to influence crime reduction decisions.
The interactive crime reduction research map shows details of ongoing policing related research being conducted at universities and other institutions across the UK. The map, which can be zoomed and panned by users, identifies the locations of institutions and their research projects, which can then be filtered according to region and topic of research.
