Jerzy Sarnecki is a professor of criminology at Stockholm University. He studied geodesy as an undergraduate before earning a Ph.D. in sociology from Stockholm University. During his schooling, he worked at youth recreation centres, which led to his later work as a researcher of juvenile delinquency for the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention.

He served as Division Head at the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention until he became a professor of criminology at Stockholm University. He has intermittently served as head of the Department of Criminology at Stockholm University, a member of the Scientific Commission of the International Society of Criminology, and vice-president of the Scandinavian Research Council for Criminology.

He has recently been reexamining his positions on socioeconomics of crime, noting inconsistencies in the reporting of rape in Sweden based on immigration status which may be attributable to socioeconomics rather than cultural or assimilation-issues. His research into the matter is ongoing.
