This is the website for Dr Jerry Ratcliffe, Professor of Criminal Justice at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, and Director of the Center for Security and Crime Science.
My current research projects include an analysis of the crime reduction effectiveness of the CCTV cameras in Philadelphia (with Dr Liz Groff and funded by the NIJ), and a SMART Policing Initiative collaboration with the Philadelphia Police Department (funded by BJA). Professor Ralph Taylor and I are also working with Azavea on an NIJ-funded predictive policing program.

If you have a media request, visit the Temple University media site, or call 215-204-8561. Their website has a brief faculty focus video. I do not comment on stories related to police corruption or misconduct, and generally only comment on stories related to policing and crime in the Philadelphia region.
