Opportunities to Get Involved

Job Opportunities

The Center for Violence Prevention & Community Safety (CVPCS) routinely hires interviewers for its Arizona Arrestee Reporting Information Network (AARIN) Project. The AARIN project conducts periodic data collection in local booking facilities through face-to-face interviews with recent arrestees. The interviewers gain valuable experience and insight from within the criminal justice system, benefitting both professional and academic goals. The survey interviewer position can be an excellent job for a current undergraduate or graduate student, someone looking for part-time work, or just looking for an interesting and rewarding experience to learn more about the criminal justice system and primary data collection in an academic research project.
