The Nebraska Center for Justice Research (NCJR) was established in 2014 with a mission to develop and sustain criminal justice research capacity internal to the State of Nebraska.
“Our goal is to assist the Legislature, justice agencies, practitioners, foundations, and stakeholders with research and evaluation to reduce recidivism, promote the use of evidence-based practices, and improve public safety,” shared NCJR director, Ryan Spohn, Ph.D.
From working with professionals during the pandemic, through shutdowns, personnel changes, and an active legislative session in the state, the NCJR had another prominent year. Meet the team, learn about the NCJR’s goals, and read up on the most notable takeaways from the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
