CJRP group

USF is known as a preeminent research university, and we are proud to contribute our innovative, interdisciplinary, and translational research efforts. The Center for Justice Research & Policy conducts research that spans across three major areas of the criminal justice system: policing, corrections, and courts -- and with a focus on prevention, intervention, risk and protective factors, systems change, and public safety. By applying rigorous methods and evaluations, and collaborating with practitioners and community partners, research findings will be used to guide and inform policy change.
