The International Police Executive Symposium (IPES) was founded in 1994 to address one major challenge, i.e., the two worlds of research and practice remain disconnected even though cooperation between the two is growing. Research is often published in hard-to-access journals and presented in a manner that is difficult for some to comprehend. On the other hand, police practitioners tend not to mix with researchers and remain secretive about their work. Consequently there is little dialogue between the two, and almost no attempt to learn from one another.
The aims and objectives of the IPES are to provide a forum to foster closer relationships among police researchers and practitioners on a global scale, to facilitate cross-cultural international and interdisciplinary exchanges for the enrichment of this law enforcement, to encourage discussion, and to publish research on challenging and contemporary problems facing the policing profession. The IPES facilitates interaction and the exchange of ideas and opinions on all aspects of policing, and is structured to encourage dialogue in both formal and informal settings.
The International Police Executive Symposium (IPES) holds annual meetings of policing scholars and practitioners who represent many countries. The best papers are selected, thoroughly revised, fully updated, meticulously edited, and published as books based upon the theme of each meeting. This repository of knowledge from renowned criminal justice scholars and police professionals under the co-publication imprint of IPES and Routledge (formerly CRC Press) chronicles the important contributions of the International Police Executive Symposium over the last two decades.
