Conduct Research

CJLM conducts research and development on contemporary issues relevant to justice practitioners, policy makers, and scholars.  Recent examples include research on crime and police reform in the developing nation of Trinidad and Tobago and on the relationship between Compstat and community policing in the U.S.  CJLM is also supporting the Department of Homeland Security in developing a multi-band radio to enable emergency responders to communicate with partner agencies

Current multi-site projects involving Center members and affiliates include:

  • the systematic observation of procedural justice in policing
  • in-depth interviews with patrol officers to understand and assess the nature of the police craft
  • an examination of the effects of police technology on the organization and practice of police work and
  • the development of a risk management methodology in the areas of terrorism, schools, and other hazards
