Policing interventions for targeting interpersonal violence in developing countries: a systematic review

3ie Systematic review 20

Angela Higginson, Lorraine Mazerolle, Michelle Sydes, Jacqueline Davis and Kerrie Mengersen

This systematic review by Higginson and colleagues examines the effectiveness of policing interventions in reducing interpersonal violent crime in developing countries. It also explores the reasons for success and failure by drawing on evidence from process evaluations.  Only five studies assessed the effect of a range of different policing interventions with insufficient evidence to reach generalizable conclusions. The authors call for more evaluations on the effectiveness of police training programmes, interventions to address gender-based violence, changes to staffing models and police visibility, community-oriented policing, partnership policing, and police crackdowns.
