Sherman (born Schenectady, NY, 25 October 1949) is an experimental criminologist and the founder of "evidence-based policing."

The founding director of the Jerry Lee Centre for Experimental Criminology, he also serves as Chair of the Cambridge Police Executive Programme and CEO of the Cambridge Centre for Evidence-Based Policing. A Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland's Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice since 2010, Sherman's use of randomized controlled experiments to study deterrence and crime prevention has led him to examine such wide-ranging issues as domestic violence, police crackdowns and saturation patrol, gun violence and crime, crack houses, and reintegrative shaming. He is best known as an experimental criminologist, and the "father" of evidence-based policing. First edition. First printing [stated]. Very good in good dust jacket.
