Mr. Siska has nearly two decades of experience researching the criminal justice. At the Better Government Association of Chicago, he worked closely with some of the best investigative reporters in the city. Using computer assisted reporting to uncover inequities in the criminal justice system throughout the city and Illinois, Siska began to explore the ways technology could contribute to coverage of policing issues. In 1997, he began producing public affairs radio program called, “Crime and Punishment.” He received his Master of Arts degree in Criminal Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is currently a visiting professor in the Department of Criminal & Social Justice at the University of St. Francis. Recognizing that no single organization existed to promote evidence-based discussions among law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve, Siska established the Chicago Justice Project.
