Entrance to John Jay

The Investigative Psychology Research Unit (IPRU), directed by Professor C. Gabrielle Salfati, is based in the Department of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, at the City University of New York. The IPRU is focused on Practitioner Focused Research, and training to support Evidence Led Practice within the criminal justice system. Much of our research is done in collaboration with law enforcement agencies, clinicians, and other practitioners internationally, and by consulting with practitioners on key needs, we base our research on practice informed questions, and through research, we ultimately aim to provide empirically based and relevant research to support evidence-based training. The IPRU focuses on two areas of research and training as they pertain to law enforcement practice: ​Investigative Psychology & Positive Psychology
