The Centre for Research, Innovation & Scholarship (CRIS) supports the JIBC vision of being a "world leader in justice and public safety education and research" through an integrated program of work with a pan-institute focus and mission, including strategic and operational objectives as we move forward to build research capacity and leadership.

Our vision is to help keep communities safe through an active applied research agenda that engages first responders, first receivers, practitioners, policy makers, stakeholders and services users.  We achieve this by developing new knowledge in emerging disciplines that informs best practice and public policy, enhances justice and public safety curriculum, and leverages learning technologies and methodologies with the result of increasing public awareness.

We do this by building capacity in scholarship, advancing the development of our disciplines and professions, and leading applied justice and public safety research.
