Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $85,204)

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.

The New York Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) will use funds to carry out the following projects: (1) prepare monthly analytical reports of performance measures derived from the statewide CrimeStat program; (2) track changes in criminal system processing and diversion to treatment at both the state and local levels to determine the impact of New York's new Rockefeller Drug Laws and guide implementation and resource allocation decisions; (3) extract 2010 domestic violence homicide data from the Uniform Crime Report's Supplemental Homicide Reporting file and compare findings to the previous three years; and (4) provide ongoing training and technical assistance to County Re-entry Task Force (CRTF) program coordinators to facilitate the timely receipt of accurate case-level data and prepare profiles of CRTF participants to inform case management and supervision decisions.
