Criminal Justice Policy Research

The Research and Evaluation Center partnered with Justice Fellowship (JF) to provide expertise and support that could advance JF’s goal of changing the national narrative on criminal justice. The project resulted in a series of research reports on issues related to current issues and shortcomings associated with criminal justice system practices. The goal of each report was to influence ideas, beliefs and political leadership on criminal justice issues and to shift from an emphasis on incarceration to approaches that demonstrate a positive impact while maintaining public safety, showing respect to crime victims, and rehabilitating offenders. The long-term objective was to assist JF in building its presence and scope in state and federal criminal justice advocacy.
