It is with great pride that the Riley County Police Department announces the induction of RCPD Administrative Captain Tim Hegarty, into the Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame. This nomination and induction comes after his integral role in forming what is now the department’s use of evidence-based policing strategies.

His work along with Dr. Susan Williams of Kansas State University, her department and members of the Riley County Police Department’s Patrol Division have afforded the community proof that intelligence lead policing can have a positive effect on area crime. Department endeavors like “Initiative: Laser Point,” a hot spot policing program, could not have been possible without this research partnership.

"I feel very fortunate to work with people who can takes anyone's good idea and make it a success, especially the men and women of the RCPD's Patrol Division." –Captain Tim Hegarty

The Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame is in association with the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy of George Mason University.
