Dr. Danielle Fenimore is currently employed full-time as a research associate with the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), a non-profit research organization focused on addressing issues in modern policing. She is currently the primary investigator on two federally-funded projects focused on the implementation and efficacy of evidence-based practices in policing. In 2022, she will be PI on a national survey on police response to civil disturbances, with funding from the National Institute of Justice. Prior to her work at PERF, she worked for the University of Memphis' Public Safety Institute, assessing the need for and evaluating the use of crime and justice policies in Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee. Before Memphis, she was focusing on completing her doctoral degree in Criminal Justice at Texas State University.
