TEST2! GPD About


The Global Policing Database (GPD) is a web-based and searchable database designed to capture all published and unpublished experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations of policing interventions conducted since 1950.

The Global Policing Database was developed by researchers at the University of Queensland, Australia. The project was funded by the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (via The College of Policing) and an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship awarded to Professor Lorraine Mazerolle at the University of Queensland.
