Insight Policing is a project of the Center for Applied Insight Conflict Resolution (CAICR). Founded by Dr. Megan Price, who co-developed Insight Policing, CAICR empowers strategic problem solving through curiosity. CAICR offers tailored skills training, facilitation and consultation to help professionals overcome challenges and chart productive ways forward.
WHERE DID INSIGHT POLICING COME FROM?
Insight Policing was developed between 2012 and 2014 in collaboration with the Memphis, TN and Lowell, MA police departments with a grant from the US Department of Justice to bring a conflict perspective to the challenge of retaliatory community violence.
Our work highlighted the conflict that can often animate not just violent crime among community members, but encounters between community and police.
Insight Policing provides actionable skills that position officers to prevent conflict from escalating with community members so they can ensure safety, get to the root of the problem and enforce the law effectively.
You can be an instructor too.
Insight Policing is co-taught by conflict resolution experts and senior law enforcement, offering a unique collaboration, blending discoveries from each field to build a skill-set that officers can put to use right away to solve tense, challenging or escalating interactions with the public and within their organization.
