Criminal Justice Policy Foundation (CJPF)

Robert C. Linnell, a Boston businessman and philanthropist, was alarmed by the grave threat of corruption to the American criminal justice system. Linnell saw this corruption as endemic to drug enforcement and, in 1988, inspired to establish The Criminal Justice Policy Foundation (CJPF) in effort to address these threats. Linnell believed that a criminal justice system that is honest, fair and effective is one of America's most important institutions. He believed that America's national life depends upon our safety and liberty, which in turn depend upon the integrity and effectiveness of our justice system.

CJPF is a private, non-profit organization that educates the public about the criminal justice system. It is a tax-exempt charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

CJPF's mission is to educate the public about the impact of drug policy and the problems of policing on the criminal justice system. We provide information and advice to policy makers, criminal justice professionals, and the public through consultation, education programs, conferences, publications, the news media and the Internet. The foundation assists drug policy reform organizations with advice on legal organization, management, outreach, research, media relations, and coalition building. CJPF also provides speakers to educational institutions and organizations of all kinds.
