The Crime and Justice TIG focuses on performance measurement and evaluation in the areas of criminal and juvenile justice, including:


Law Enforcement



Corrections (including probation, parole and reentry)

We welcome evaluators with interests in any of these areas, including evaluators working in social services that interface with the justice system. We strongly encourage and welcome interdisciplinary collaboration between the justice, public health and education communities.
