Embedding police officers in police research organisations has many benefits arising from mutual understanding and trust. Four police officers from the Queensland Police Service in Australia were sequentially seconded to CEPS (Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security) between 2008-2013. The fourth, Jason Saunders, reflects on the process and outcomes, with a number of products which benefitted from the input of the 'embedded cop' listed.
