Providing nonpartisan policy analysis, consulting, and
research services to improve public safety throughout the nation.

Staff

CJI's work is supported by an energetic and highly competent staff from diverse backgrounds in the criminal justice and social science fields.

CJI goes beyond delivering technical assistance; we develop capacity within systems and create an "appetite for data" that results in learning organizations and systems, and ensures the sustainability of initiatives long after the technical assistance period. The CJI team consists of full-time staff and a network of experienced consultants that have a deep understanding of the complexities of criminal and juvenile justice systems, child welfare systems, and the latest research and its impact on policies and practices.
