Law Enforcement

The Criminal Justice Policy Research Institute at Portland State University has developed strong partnerships with local and state police throughout Oregon and has worked on national law enforcement-oriented projects. More specifically, CJPRI has been involved in law enforcement research regarding: traffic stop and search data collection, crime analysis, GIS crime mapping, community policing, community crime prevention (e.g., Weed & Seed), racial profiling and bias, domestic violence, and public perceptions of law enforcement. To learn more about some of these efforts link to the following tabs in the CJPRI website: Inside the Oregon LECC, Crime Data, Domestic Violence.


CJPRI has had the privilege of bringing to Portland two national law enforcement experts (Dr. John Eck and David Kennedy) to give research presentations.
