The New Zealand Police Strategic Research Agenda / Te Rautaki Kaupapa Rangahau o Ngā Pirihimana o Aotearoa 2020-2022 identifies the areas of research priority most likely to translate into improved outcomes for New Zealand’s communities.

Delivered under the direction of the Evidence Based Police Centre, the four research priorities are:

  • Forecasting and preventing crime and harm
  • Enhancing our Organisational Capability
  • Strengthening our sector partnerships
  • Connecting with communities

The Strategic Research Agenda encourages active collaboration between Police, stakeholder groups, researchers and partners to build a New Zealand-specific evidence-base responsive to the evolving needs of the Police and the communities we serve.
