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 researchers with criminal justice institutions, or advancing scientific research more generally in crime and justice. The award is conferred at the CEBCP Annual Symposium. The recipient of the 2022 Distinguished Achievement Award is the Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr.
