Our Mission

HomeOur Mission

The Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP), housed within the Department of Criminology, Law and Society at George Mason University, seeks to make scientific research a key component in decisions about crime and justice policies. The CEBCP carries out this mission by advancing rigorous studies in criminal justice and criminology through research-practice collaborations, and proactively serving as an informational and translational link to practitioners and the policy community.

The CEBCP was established in 2008. It is the current home of the American Society of Criminology's flagship policy journal, Criminology & Public Policy.
