Patricia E. Campie
Trish Campie is a criminologist with more than 20 years of experience leading community-based research, evaluation, and implementation science initiatives across systems and communities where justice involvement is a key concern of populations made vulnerable by economic and social disparities. Dr. Campie recently completed a study examining the impact of police integration in violence prevention on community norms of violence in disadvantaged communities in Massachusetts. Related to this work, she is leading an evaluation for Fight Crime Invest in Kids to assess the Police Training Institute, which aims to improve interactions between police and youth of color.
For USAID, Dr. Campie is the technical lead on a project to assess the global evidence base for preventing and reducing violence among youth and young adults, ages 10–29 and testing interventions suitable for implementation in Latin America and Caribbean contexts. She recently began a federally funded study with two counties in Maryland to examine the feasibility of implementing a Pay for Success initiative for former offenders at risk of homelessness while reentering the community from corrections. Similarly, she is leading a study for the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition to assess the feasibility of using a Pay for Success approach to implement evidence-based dual language learning programs for Spanish-speaking youth in PK–3rd grades.
Dr. Campie co-leads a project for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to integrate homelessness and justice system data among homeless populations in six jurisdictions as part of the White House’s Data Driven Justice initiative. She occupies a senior role on the Initiative to Develop and Test Juvenile Drug Court Guidelines, a five-year study funded by OJJDP. For this project, she recently completed a systematic review on implementation effectiveness of adolescent interventions. Most recently, Dr. Campie began a five-year longitudinal project through the National Institute of Justice to study the root causes of school violence in California high-risk high-need communities. In 2017, she completed the School Safety Toolkit-First Edition based on earlier work done in that state. She is currently piloting a system calibration process with Middlesex County Massachusetts to address Opioid-related issues among high utilizers of justice, health, and social support systems.
