Principles of Procedurally Just Policing


The Justice Collaboratory in conjunction with the National Initiative for Building Community Trust & Justice (NI), unveiled a new set of practical guidelines aimed at incorporating procedural justice into policing practices. Written for an audience of policy-makers and policing executives, these guidelines are meant to aide departments in adapting and developing policies that will strengthen legitimacy and trust in interactions with the communities they serve.

Principles of Procedurally Just Policing translates the empirical evidence gleaned from research into a set of ideal goals and actionable policies that police departments can implement.

The Justice Collaboratory brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and researchers at Yale University and elsewhere to work on issues related to institutional reform and policy innovation and advancement. We infuse theory and empirical research in order to achieve our goal of making the components of criminal justice operation simultaneously more effective, just, and democratic.

Justice Forward is the Justice Collaboratory’s vision for rethinking and reforming the criminal justice system. We are forging a new path grounded in the idea that if we are to build a fair and effective system, we must 1) arrest the persistence of inequality and draw down the concentration of criminal justice exposure that itself can become criminogenic, 2) focus on mobilizing and engaging members of the community as co-producers of justice, and 3) be mindful of the fact that offending and victimization are concentrated and intertwined within the same small social networks. The Justice Collaboratory will pursue this vision through the production of innovative and collaborative research, policy engagement, training, and outreach.
