The Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP), housed within the Department of Criminology, Law and Society at George Mason University, released the fall 2017 issue of Translational Criminology to share examples of how research is converted into criminal justice practice. This biannual magazine advances CEBCP’s mission of providing an informational link between practitioners and the policy community and advancing research-practice collaborations.

In the fall 2017 issue, you can read articles on a range of topics and projects, including:

  • The CEBCP Proactive Policing Lab, which addresses the challenges of proactivity faced by law enforcement officers, such as detection, measurement, implementation, and evaluation;
  • Court reforms in rural and small-town courts in New York; and
  • The Misdemeanor Justice Project at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, which is working to conduct and publish objective analyses that document trends in lower-level offenses and incarceration.

Special features in the magazine include highlights from the 2017 CEBCP Symposium held in June, Distinguished Achievement Award winners, and 2017 Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame inductees.
