Media Resources

We are a research-based, nonprofit organization using science and innovation to pursue excellence in policing. While the work we do is highly technical and complex, we work diligently with local, national, and international media outlets to distill the information into news you, the reporter, can use.



Here are our main points of contact, though we have a variety of subject matter experts we can call upon to assist as well. If you are a member of the media and would like to interview President Jim Burch, or any other member of our staff, please email: or call (571) 562-1607.

Please include the nature of your request and your deadline.
