Charles Koch Institute Welcomes Criminal Justice Reform Expert Vikrant P. Reddy

The Charles Koch Institute announced today that Vikrant P. Reddy has joined the organization as a senior fellow focusing on criminal justice and policing reform. Reddy comes to the Institute after nearly five years at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, where he most recently served as a senior policy analyst at the Center for Effective Justice and was the original manager of the Right on Crime initiative.

Reddy has published numerous articles, contributed amicus briefs and testimony and is a frequent media commentator on criminal justice issues. He testified before administrative boards and legislative committees more than 30 times during the 83rd Texas Legislative Session alone and has presented invited testimony before the U.S. Sentencing Commission.

“We’re thrilled to have a national thought leader in the criminal justice and policing reform area join the Institute,” said Will Ruger, vice president for research and policy. “Vikrant’s work will be a critical addition to the Institute’s work with our students and increasingly the general public as we examine opportunities for reforms that are vital to improving individual and societal well-being across the country.”

Reddy joins the Institute as it is ramping up its educational efforts on criminal justice reform, with recent events in Atlanta and Tallahassee examining the impact of the criminal justice system on offenders, their families and communities, and how reform can improve overall well-being and opportunity.
