This article, which appears in the Spring 2017 issue of Translational Criminology, the magazine of the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy, points out that problem-oriented policing can be understood as an application of translational criminology that bridges the gap between researchers and practitioners. The article discusses how the finalist projects of the 2016 Herman Goldstein Awards for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing are examples of research applied to police practices. The award is administered by the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing. Access the article through or at
