Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $60,000)

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 Delaware Statistical Analysis Center will complete the following activities: 1) obtain statewide data on deaths occurring in the process of arrest or in pursuit of arrest; 2) continue to maintain criminal justice system performance measurements; and 3) conduct a recidivism project analyzing criminal history records and DOC treatment records. Funds are also requested for in-state travel to collect data and out-of-state travel to JRSA's spring 2012 Meeting of State Criminal Justice Agencies in Washington, DC. CA/NCF
