Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $127,630)

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 SAC, located within the New York Division of Criminal Justice Services, will use SJS funds to complete the following projects: 1) collaborate with BJS on a two-year project to analyze national RAP sheets dating from the mid-1970s to document the historical patterns in the law-violating behavior of juvenile offenders; 2) prepare monthly analytical reports of performance measures derived from the statewide CrimeStat program; 3) 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 on issues such as plea practices and sentencing outcomes; 4) extract 2011 domestic violence homicide data from the Uniform Crime Report's Supplemental Homicide Reporting file and compare findings to earlier years; and 5) provide ongoing training and technical assistance to the County Re-entry Task Force (CRTF) staff to facilitate the receipt of timely and accurate case-level data and prepare profiles of CRTF participants to inform decisions regarding case management and supervision.
