The National Policing Institute was established in 1970 as a non-partisan and independent nonprofit organization dedicated to pursuing excellence in policing through science and innovation.

The National Policing Institute has been on the cutting edge of police innovation for over 50 years since it was established by the Ford Foundation as a result of the President’s Commission on the Challenge of Crime in a Free Society.

NPI, formerly known as the National Police Foundation, has been recognized as one of the 2024 Best Nonprofits to Work For, based primarily on employee feedback. See www.BestNonprofitstoWorkFor.com for more information.
