Abstract

The author notes that the theme of this chapter is that engagement by psychological scientists with law enforcement is mutually beneficial. Police benefit from the application of established psychological principles to a set of challenges that are inherently cognitive, affective, motivational, behavioral, and social in nature. Psychological science benefits from studying psychological principles in a domain that is highly important but also where effects of judgments and decisions are concrete, palpable, and, increasingly, measured. In this chapter, we explore this theme in depth and, bearing the multiple and mutual benefits in mind, discuss how scientists can connect and collaborate with law enforcement agencies and officials and how to have an effect on policing and on the populations that are policed.
