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 award, the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet's Statistical Analysis Center requests funds to conduct a periodic crime victimization survey; collect statewide data on deaths occurring in the process of arrest or in the pursuit of arrest; publish the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics for the Commonwealth, as well as produce a report on hate crimes and incidents occurring in the Commonwealth; assess and report on the results of Kentucky's upcoming criminal justice systems review; and, support the general operations of the Kentucky Statistical Analysis Center.
