In the past, both police administrators and rank and file police officers were not likely to place much value on higher education, training, and scientific research as important sources of information. The articles here debunk many of these assertions, and open up several new areas for consideration of how education, training, and research can contribute to police work and how collaboration can be beneficial to both practitioners and academics.
