3.28 Public innovation literature review

Academic team: Professor Jean Hartley, Dr Laurence Knell
Policing partners: College of Policing
Status: Complete


To undertake a systematic literature review and synthesis of the academic literature, along with some policy literature, on the evidence about the design, processes and outcomes of public innovation. The literature review has provided an evidence base for later initiatives and developments in the College of Policing approach to innovation.  The literature review will also be of benefit to individual police forces and their leads for innovation, as well as enhancing the diffusion of innovation across the policing sector as a whole. 

The literature review has provided a sense of the range and quality of evidence about public innovation. This will enable police innovators, executive teams and national organizations (e.g. College, NPCC) to draw on concepts, frameworks and evidence as they expand or develop their approach to innovation.
