Introduction

Rob Worden is a political scientist whose research revolves around questions about the accountability and responsiveness of criminal justice institutions to the public. Thus his research includes both basic research – concerned with explaining the behavior of criminal justice actors in terms of political, organizational, and social influences – and applied research – concerned with the implementation and outcomes (read: social benefits) of criminal justice policies and programs. Most of his research has focused on police behavior and police programs and reforms; his scholarship has appeared in a number of academic journals, and his research has been funded by the National Institute of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, and a number of local governments.

Professor Worden is currently engaged in studies of: (1) police legitimacy, procedural justice, and accountability; (2) police misconduct and early intervention systems; (3) citizen oversight of the police; (4) patterns of proactive policing and its effects; and (5) the implementation and impacts of gang violence reduction strategies.
