Krisberg to leave NCCD

After 14 years leading the Oakland, Calif.-based National Council on Crime and Delinquency, President Barry Krisberg is leaving the organization. “I’m passing on the fun and games to someone else,” Krisberg told JJ Today in a telephone interview.

Far from leaving the JJ field, he said he plans to “focus on the things I want.” Any foundation or organization in need of a consultant would likely have Krisberg at the top of the list. Teaching is another option: Krisberg was a professor at the University of California-Berkeley, and remains an adjunct professor for the University of Hawaii.

It is unclear whether a new leader will emerge from the ranks at the 101-year-old NCCD, or come from the outside. The organization has hired a private firm to handle the search. The National Council on Crime and Delinquency has a staff of 32 and specializes in research and training.
