Dr. Oren Gur joined the DAO in 2018 to use analytics, research, and criminological theory to plan and implement policy to transform Philadelphia’s legal system. Oren currently serves as a Policy Advisor and is the Director of Research and the District Attorney's Transparency Analytics (DATA) Lab. At the DAO, Dr. Gur has been a PI or Co-I on over $7 million in foundation, state, and federal grants, including to create the DATA Lab, a new unit that supports policy, practice, and research into the impact of the criminal justice system on communities. The DATA Lab works to promote transparency particularly with regards to data and research, and helps to inform prosecutors and the public. The DATA Lab is unique in its ability to link arrest, court, and other criminal- and non-criminal legal data to help evaluate efforts towards improving public safety and inform data-driven policy reform. Oren has worked on prosecutor-led bail reform, sentencing reform to reduce mass supervision, an interagency report on shootings and the availability of guns in Philadelphia, legislation empowering law enforcement to inspect gun sellers, the decriminalization of buprenorphine and fentanyl test strip possession, and the 57 Blocks Coalition, and facilitated independent research on topics including bail reform, accidental drug overdoses and criminal justice contacts, the resentencing of juvenile lifers, and prosecutorial discretion.
