McGarrell’s research interests are in the area of communities and crime. He is the Principal Investigator (with Tim Bynum) of an initiative sponsored by the National Institute of Justice whereby the School of Criminal Justice is the national research team for Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN). PSN is a major Department of Justice program intended to reduce firearms violence in the United States. He is also the Co-PI for projects involving law enforcement intelligence and food supply chain security, both sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. As part of the Risk Initiative, McGarrell is collaborating with faculty from a variety of fields to promote research on emerging issues related to environmental and natural resource crime, supply chain security, and counterfeiting. McGarrell has conducted several long-term research projects including an experiment on the use of restorative justice conferences as an alternative response to juvenile crime and a strategic problem solving initiative to reduce homicide and firearms violence. McGarrell’s research has been funded by the National Institute of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, private foundations, industry, and state and local agencies.
