Center for Justice Research & Policy
The Center for Justice Research & Policy at the University of South Florida hosts an interdisciplinary team of scholars and practitioners focused on the study of crime, violence, and criminal and social justice policy. Rigorous research and evaluations enhance the evidence base of policing, corrections, and court practices. Joint collaborations across multiple fields, and between scientists and practitioners, can lead to innovate strategies that:
- Help reduce crime and incarceration
- Promote safe communities and equitable justice
- Improve outcomes for persons at risk of being involved in the justice system
- Inform policy change and action
