The mission of the Florida State University Project on Accountable Justice (PAJ) is to advance public safety through evidence-based practices and policies in Florida and beyond.

In Florida, and across the nation, the criminal justice reform movement has a crucial need for accountability and measurable results across all areas of the justice system. The Florida State University Project on Accountable Justice (PAJ) is a non-partisan organization with a mission to provide meaningful, independent, public-interest research and education that will help to guide reforms that enlist evidence-based approaches to criminal justice.

Comprised of public policy academics from distinguished educational institutions, PAJ is working to facilitate research and public dialogue to explore options for reform throughout Florida, and the nation, that turns the tide on expensive prisons with poor outcomes like high recidivism rates, and turns instead to proven public policy solutions that increase public safety and ensure system accountability.
