Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $50,581)

The State Justice Statistics (SJS) Program is designed to maintain and enhance each state's capacity to address criminal justice issues through collection and analysis of data. The SJS Program provides support to each state to coordinate and conduct statistical activities within the state, conduct research to estimate impacts of legislative and policy changes, and serve as a liaison in assisting BJS to gather data from respondent agencies within their states.

Under this grant, the Ohio Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) located in the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS), a division of the Ohio Department of Public Safety, will carry out the following activities: 1) obtain statewide data on deaths in police custody and provide information to BJS; 2) continue to make enhancements to the OCJS website to provide the public with the latest research, evaluation, and statistics; 3) continue to generate reports using Ohio's incident-based reporting system; and 4) increase education and awareness initiatives for violence reduction regarding the Project Ceasefire Crime Reduction strategy already begun in 8 cities in northern Ohio and evaluate the program at the local level.
