Brigham Young University’s David M. Kennedy Center will host Ron Gordon, executive director of the Commission on Criminal Justice and Juvenile Justice for the State of Utah Thursday, Nov. 3 at 4 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building. He will speak on “Career Reflections: Policy Development.”

Gordon oversees a 21-member commission charged with coordinating criminal and juvenile justice policy throughout Utah. He works closely with executive branch agencies, the legislature, judiciary and local governments, as well as private providers in policy development, and he also serves on the governor’s senior staff as an advisor on criminal justice policy.

Previously, Gordon served as the director of the Office of Crime Victim Reparations, coordinator of the Criminal Justice Advisory Council in Salt Lake County, director of the Utah Sentencing Commission and staff attorney to the Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice. 

He received a bachelor’s degree from BYU and a law degree from the University of Utah.
