How does any innovation become a common practice? How does a successful idea go from being an isolated project to wide-scale implementation? Once new approaches become established, how can they be sustained? These were just some of the questions police chiefs, public health researchers, and grant-makers sought to answer at a recent roundtable discussion on innovative collaborations between law enforcement and public health. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), The California Endowment, and the Center for Court Innovation, the January 20, 2012 discussion featured presentations on current research across public health and public safety disciplines, new initiatives, and funding strategies.
