Professor Lauryn Gouldin has been awarded a New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services Grant to support research into trends in criminal justice reform, with a particular focus on developments in New York State.  

As Principal Investigator, Gouldin will organize a speaker series, open to the community, that will address comparative approaches to criminal justice reform; data-driven insights for understanding trends in criminal justice reform; practitioners’ perspectives on reform; and interdisciplinary criminal justice research, among other topics.

The grant also provides support for research into emerging criminal justice reform topics, including pretrial decision-making, comparing New York bail and other reforms with reforms in other states, and analyzing potential for technology to restrain police interference with individual liberty, without increasing public safety risk.
