Arnold Ventures’ Criminal Justice initiative aims to advance community safety and the values of fairness, effectiveness, and racial justice. We fund innovative work in five domains: Policing, Pretrial Justice, Community Supervision, Prisons, and Reintegration. The Initiative works with teams of experts from inside and outside government and across disciplines to reform the U.S. criminal justice system through research, evidence, testing innovative pilot programs, and policy change.
We are seeking a Director of Criminal Justice Research to establish our policing research agenda, lead many of our most significant research projects, and provide strategic research-related advice across the Criminal Justice team. This individual will be responsible for identifying, analyzing, and pursuing new, high-leverage philanthropic opportunities, and managing current investments. The Director of Criminal Justice Research will report directly to the Vice President of Criminal Justice overseeing the Policing domain and, working closely with the Executive Vice President of Criminal Justice, will be instrumental in building a portfolio focused on effective policing, including crime trends and reducing violent crime, police reforms, disparate racial impacts, understanding the arrest power and alternatives to arrest. The Director will report to the Vice President of Criminal Justice overseeing the policing portfolio. (For more information about our policing portfolio, see www.arnoldventures.org/work/policing.)
