This session will discuss the development of the ANZPAA Cross-jurisdictional Research Priorities. This was as a result of the Police Research Workshop session at the ANZPAA Police Conference 2019. The Research Priorities is provides a foundation from which research efforts can be directed and focused to provide good value to police, researchers and the community. They enhance research capability through coordination, collaboration and knowledge sharing to maximise value for policing, reduce duplication of effort and ensure police and their partners are collaborating. It further identifies a number of Research Domains that detail subject areas important to the evidence base for policing.
