Investigate. Analyze. Evaluate.

Engaging citizens and public agencies to inform criminal justice policy.


Welcome to the Center for Crime and Justice Policy (CCJP). CCJP is a research center that 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).
