Statement of Support

We believe that safety and justice deserves better data. An essential step in realizing this goal is the adoption of criminal justice metrics that provide timely, consistent data to policymakers and their communities. Consensus-driven metrics that account for variation in data collection, analysis, and reporting and that provide key insights on system trends, operations, and outcomes across all criminal justice sectors provide a new and crucial resource for the field. We believe that, together, we can make Justice Count.
