- About CIR
Ryan Gabrielson covers public safety for The Center for Investigative Reporting. He was a 2009-2010 investigative reporting fellow at UC Berkeley. Previously, his reporting for the East Valley Tribune in Mesa, Ariz., exposed that immigration enforcement by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office undermined criminal investigations and emergency response; scholarship charities were committing tax fraud; and widespread academic and financial malfeasance occurred at the nation's largest community college district. Ryan’s work has received numerous national and state honors, including a Pulitzer Prize, George Polk Award and Sigma Delta Chi Award. He began his career at The Monitor in McAllen, Texas.
