Abstract: The Peter P. Lejins Research Award is presented each year to an individual involved in criminal justice research who has “produced significant research for the correctional community and has demonstrated person commitment and contribution to improve the profession of corrections”. In 2013, this award was presented to Kristen M. Zgoba who is currently supervisor of research and evaluation at the New Jersey Department of Corrections. This article highlights her current work as well as past research that she has done in the field of criminal justice. Ms. Zgoba’s current work focuses on sex offender management, offender recidivism, and correctional health care, among other things. Ms. Zgoba has also developed a 5-year research initiative and grant framework for her department, in addition to being an adjunct professor at Rutgers University.
