Temple's Ratcliffe Named to New IACP Science Post

The International Association of Chiefs of Police named Temple University's Jerry Ratcliffe to a new position as the organization's scientific advisor, where it said he will "shape the association's research program" as it expands more into original research. Ratcliffe said on Twitter the position is part time and that he remains "very much committed at Temple University," where he is a professor of criminal justice known for his policing research. Ratcliffe, a former London police officer, has served as an advisor to the Philadelphia police commissioner and research advisor to the Criminal Investigative Division of the FBI. He is the author of Evidence-Based Policing: The Basics and hosts the podcast Reducing Crime, where he interviews police executives and other experts. The IACP already has a research center team comprised of academics and practitioners.
