Indiana Crime Data Survey Findings 2012

Services: Crime analysis, Analytical studies, Data management

Research Areas: Criminal Justice, Public Safety

For more than a decade, the PPI's Center for Criminal Justice Research (CCJR) has partnered with the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) to address critical issues related to Indiana’s justice systems including: crime prevention; drug and alcohol abuse associated with crime; law enforcement; sentencing and corrections; and, traffic safety. On behalf of ICJI, our criminal justice team conducted program assessments of 12 federal grant programs between January 2006 and June 2008.

In an effort to further assist ICJI in improving criminal justice programming and policy development in Indiana, CCJR entered into a two-year research partnership (beginning in June 2011) to perform critical data collection and analytical tasks in two broad research areas identified as priorities by ICJI. The scope of work includes 1) a review of best practices for all Victims Services division programs and primary program areas under ICJI’s Drug and Crime Control division and Youth Services funding streams, and 2) a statewide justice data records assessment that will serve as a first step in developing a statewide crime and justice data collaboration that could emulate the nationally recognized traffic safety records collaboration facilitated by ICJI.
