Evidence-based policing (EBP) represents a significant shift in policing paradigms as it requires police to actively engage with academics, academic institutions, and scholars from various fields of endeavor by participating in and applying research and evaluation studies to contemporary police policies and practices. EBP is the common goal and individual, group performance and collaboration are key factors to successful inter- and intra-organizational initiatives. Many police leaders fail to recognize, understand, or deal with a number of practical and philosophical impediments that hinder the successful application of EBP. Police leaders must understand that a fundamental organizational shift in goals and mission will be required during EBP implementation and that this process requires a whole organization and team approach. While the recommendation for the application of team coaching within the EBP implementation process has been made, it is also recommended that future research could include an assessment of the effectiveness of team coaching in that process.
