Abstract

Law enforcement officers are often described as being unique in the way they resist research and science findings and also innovation and change based on scientific evidence. This paper questions this assumption by comparing European law enforcement professionals with European professionals from other areas of activity. Preliminary findings are presented and discussed and suggestions for future research are forwarded.
