College offers free police training

By Will Otto - Staff Reporter



Highline and Des Moines Police are offering a free training on Evidence-Based Policing, in mid March.

Evidence-based policing is being considered by the Des Moines Police Department. Highline teaches it as a part of its Criminal Justice Program. 

Evidence-based policing is an approach to policy making, and tactical decision making for police departments. It encourages departments to do more research in solving crimes. 

The training will be open to the public and will take place on March 14, 8 to 11 a.m. in Building 2. 

To register contact Crystal Kitterman at ckitterman@highline.edu. Space will be limited.

Dr. Cynthia Lum will be presenting on evidence-based approaches to prevent crime. 

Dr. Lum is a professor of criminology and law and society at George Mason University in Fairfax,Va. and one of the founding members of the Division of Policing in the American Society of Criminology. 

Dr. Lum was a patrol officer and a detective with the Baltimore Police Department.
