Eric Grommon is an applied criminologist who joined the O’Neill School at IUPUI in 2012. He is currently conducting research with practitioner partners to examine the integration of risk assessment tools on justice system operations, the use of co-response teams to manage responses to crisis calls for service, the drivers of probation revocations, and the effect of local nonprofits on gun violence.
Grommon’s research has been funded by the National Institute of Justice and has been nominated for and included in CrimeSolutions.gov, an evidence-based registry of justice system programs and practices. Previously, he served as a project manager for grant-funded research and evaluations of re-entry initiatives, residence restriction laws, and strategic firearm violence and gang interventions. He has also worked for the state Statistical Analysis Centers of Michigan (Michigan Justice Statistics Center) and Illinois (Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority) to conduct policy relevant research and analysis on justice issues pertinent to state and local government.
