Initiative Launched to Help State Corrections Agencies Expand Data Analysis Capacity

As part of the Justice Reinvestment Initiative, the Bureau of Justice Assistance is working with The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center to launch a new initiative to place data analysts in residence at state departments of corrections (DOCs).

The analysts will help those agencies develop their data analysis capacity and increase the utility of data for decision-making while also building the corrections analyst workforce. This opportunity is available to up to six DOCs for a period of three months to a year, depending on the goals and complexity of each DOC’s project.

DOCs can now express interest in the opportunity. To learn more, read the CSG Justice Center article about this initiative.
