Police Research Center (PRC)

In 1993, the Police Research Center was formally created as a part of the George J. Beto Criminal Justice Center. The Police Research Center is involved in several endeavors. One of the largest of these is the Criminal Research, Information Management, and Evaluation System (CRIMES), a state-of-the-art police information management system. Additionally, the Police Research Center produces, under an agreement with the Bill Blackwood Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT), the Texas Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics Program (TELEMASP) Bulletins and coordinates its Executive Issues Major Cities Program. Cooperative initiatives have included joint efforts with the Texas Regional Community Policing Institute, information system projects funded by the National Institute of Justice, partnership efforts with Eastern Kentucky University, and joint research efforts with major Texas Police Departments.
