About the CEBCP Distinguished Achievement Award in Evidence-Based Crime Policy

The Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy established the “CEBCP Distinguished Achievement Award in Evidence-Based Crime Policy” in 2010. Consistent with the mission of the Center, this award recognizes outstanding achievements and contributions by individuals in academia, practice, or the policy arena who are committed to a leadership role in advancing the use of scientific research evidence in decisions about crime and justice policies. This role includes notable efforts in connecting criminology, law and society researchers with criminal justice institutions, or advancing scientific research more generally in crime and justice. The award is conferred yearly. Letters of nomination for the 2020 Achievement Award are due February 1, 2020 and can be sent to clum@gmu.edu. Contributions to support the CEBCP’s Awards and other initiatives can be made through our 100K for 10 Campaign.
