Congratulations to Life Course Centre Chief Investigator Professor Lorraine Mazerolle, who has been selected as the 2019 winner of the Jerry Lee Lifetime Achievement Award of the Division of Experimental Criminology.

The Division of Experimental Criminology (DEC) is a division of the American Society of Criminology. It seeks to promote and improve the use and development of experimental evidence and methods in the advancement of criminological theory and evidence-based crime policy. The Jerry Lee Lifetime Achievement Award recognises leaders in the advancement of evidence-based policy through experimental methodology, experimental research, and mentorship. The award is not given for any single research project or study, but for a body of research developed over a career. In honouring Professor Mazerolle, the DEC Board said her career achievements embody the spirit of this award.

Professor Mazerolle has been invited to receive the award at the American Society of Criminology annual meeting in San Francisco in November. This award follows on from her receiving the 2018 Sellin-Glueck Award from the American Society of Criminology in recognition of outstanding contributions to scholarship and professional work on understanding crime internationally. Earlier this year, she also received the 2019 Distinguished Achievement Award in Evidence-Based Crime Policy from the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia USA.

Meanwhile, Professor Mazerolle this month visited Life Course Centre international partner university, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
