Formed in 2017 the Institute for Criminal Justice Training Reform is the only non-profit advocacy organization that seeks to reform the justice system by examining how we educate our nation's law enforcement. While we have a small board in place currently, we are looking for advice and strategic guidance on expanding our board as well as recruiting tips and resources.
Our mission is to save lives and reduce injury among the public and the police by reforming the deeply inadequate, antiquated, and flawed training models, policies and procedures and legislative standards for employees in the United States' Criminal Justice System particularly those with the power to arrest, detain, commit and kill.
Beginning with in-depth research, our organization identifies needed changes to training in coordination with those communities who are impacted the most. Encouraging public engagement, we work in partnership with organizations and community leaders to promote safe, scientific, data-driven, and innovative changes to criminal justice training throughout the U.S.
