ICFs criminal justice and victim experts are leading innovative, rigorous research to build critical knowledge in the field and support practitioners and policy makers in their decision-making and implementation of evidence-based practices.
With its impact on public safety, human rights, and government budgets, criminal justice is one of the preeminent public policy issues of the modern day. Navigating and shaping this complex system requires distinctive vision, experience, and expertise.
ICF performs essential criminal justice research, evaluations, and needs assessments for federal, state, and local government agencies. Through this work, we provide thought leadership on emerging issues; utilize rigorous, mixed-methods approaches; and ensure effective dissemination of research findings to diverse audiences.
