Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $58,448)
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 Wisconsin Statistical Analysis Center (CT SAC) will use funds to build an online application to allow law enforcement agencies to electronically enter Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) data directly to the Wisconsin Office of Justice Assistance. The application would provide the capability to not only enter UCR data, but also to validate the information provided and prepare reports. The application would allow all participating law enforcement agencies the ability to query and download their data 24 hours a day. CA/NCF
