CRISP Reports

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Connecting Research in Security to Practice (CRISP) reports provide practical, researched-based solu​tions to help security professionals effectively tackle a wide-range of security issues.

Sports Team Travel Security ​is the latest report in the series. It has been published via a micro-site where the content is eas​ier to access.  Authored by Jacques Island and Peter Tarlow Ph.D, the report explores th​​​​​e unique risk that athletes and sports venues face and provides general mitigation recommendations. 


CRISP Background

This series, launched in 2008 under the guidance of Professor Martin Gill,  invites experts in specialized aspects of security to present their views on a specific security concern. The reports provide concise summaries of available research, deliver expert analysis, and offer proven approaches and best practices. Readers can integrate recommended actions with their own existing or planned security programs. 

CRISP reports are sister publications to those produced by Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) of the U.S. Department of Justice. COPS reports, which can be accessed at, focus on policing; CRISP reports focus on security.
