The Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy engages with local, state, national, and international arenas to promote the use of rigorous scientific research and analysis to guide and inform criminal justice policy. In recent years, the criminal justice system has faced a series of new challenges from issues related to juvenile justice, prison overcrowding and re-entry, firearms violence, school safety, new federal immigration laws, terrorism and national security, and changes in criminal justice technologies that have significant impacts on society. The CEBCP is actively engaged in researching these areas, as well as disseminating knowledge through congressional briefingssymposia, workshops, our translation tools, and Translational Criminology Magazine.
