Crime Research Group Study

Are you one of the 902?

We are working with Crime Research Group (CRG) on a study funded by the National Institute of Justice to help find people willing to participate in a study about the experiences of defendants of color in Southern Vermont criminal courts. Researchers are looking to speak with people over the age of 18 who have at least one closed criminal case since 2019 that was handled in Bennington, Rutland, Windham, and/or Windsor County. Participants will be interviewed about their experience before, during, and after court.

You can find a study information sheet on CRG’s website ( which can tell you more about the purpose of the study, the interview process, and the risks/benefits of participation. Contact information is listed on the study information sheet in case you have any questions, comments, or concerns that need to be addressed before you decide whether to participate. If you are interested in participating send an email to or call/text (870) 345-7385.
