The Center for Crime and Justice Policy (CCJP) is located within the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) and examines a wide range of criminal justice topics, including police tactics and technologies, school violence, community crime prevention, community corrections, and prisoner re-entry. The center is designed to capitalize on the expertise of UNLV faculty who specialize in all areas of scientific inquiry and policy development, particularly in the field of criminal justice. CCJP maintains a close affiliation with Tourism Safety & Crowd Science (TSCS). CCJP also administers Nevada's Statistical Analysis Center (SAC).

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.
