Smart Policing: Improving Policing through Research and Analytics
Chip Coldren

Dr. James "Chip" Coldren was published as lead author on an article in Police Quarterly concerning ongoing efforts elevate the rigor of research on police crime prevention practices, and to enhance police agency capacity for research and analysis. This article serves as the introduction to a special issue of Police Quarterly devoted entirely to the Smart Policing Initiative, for which Dr. Coldren serves as national Director for Training and Technical Assistance.

Just last month, the Department of Justice refunded Smart Policing for another three years, and Dr. Coldren anticipates continuing this work vigorously. Dr. Coldren also co-authored another recently funded proposal (Evidence Based Violent Reduction Strategies), which will involve implementing collaborative crime prevention strategies in 20 of the most violent communities in America. He awaits a decision on a third proposal to implement a randomized experiment with body worn cameras in a western police agency.

If you have an interest in Dr. Coldren's work on the Smart Policing Initiative, please visit Smart Policing Intiative.com.

Communicating in the Five Love Languages
Karen Holman

There is a new exciting workshop offered quarterly at GSU entitled Communicating in the Five Love Languages. Ever wonder why you and your loved one cannot seem to make the right connection? It may be because you are not communicating love in the language that your loved one understands. Join this one-hour interactive workshop and understand how to communicate love in a way that is understood. Former students have said "This workshop has changed my life." For additional information, please see the course schedule in the GSU Portal
