This chapter argues that entrenched state of affairs is not helped by the manner in which the 'dialogue' has been conceived and conducted within certain models of evidence-based policing. It aims to advance a distinctly different vision that is structured around the 'independent interdependence' of researchers and practitioners in the co-production of research, knowledge generation, and the mobilisation and application of evidence in policing. The chapter draws on evidence collected via focus group interviews conducted with members of both the research team and policing partners. It focuses on the design, ambitions, and practical experiences of these two initiatives to illustrate both the potential and challenges that confront a model of research–practice co-production in policing. The chapter argues for a transformation in the relation and division of labour between academic researchers and policing partners as well as the value of co-production in knowledge generation, mobilization, and application within policing.
