The Center for Crime and Justice Policy (CCJP) is located within the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). CCJP’s primary mission is to use applied research to help inform criminal justice practice. CCJP works closely in collaboration with community groups, social service organizations, and criminal justice professionals on a wide range of criminal justice topics, including police tactics and technologies, school violence, community crime prevention, community corrections, and prisoner re-entry.

CCJP staff include the Director, Associate Director, Publications Coordinator, and several Research Associates and Research Assistants. A number of UNLV faculty who specialize in policy development also serve as Research Fellows.
