The Center for Science and Justice has three areas of focus: accuracy of evidence in criminal cases; the role of risk in criminal outcomes; and addressing a person’s treatment needs as an alternative to arrest and incarceration. It will also examine the needs of formerly incarcerated persons who are re-entering society. The Center’s work is non-partisan and evidence-based, and it seeks to engage with state and local government and community stakeholders to translate research into effective and practical policy.
