Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $65,000)

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 New Mexico Statistical Analysis Center (NMSAC) is requesting funds to develop a data sharing plan and related procedures for collecting and reporting deaths in custody information. The NMSAC also plans to develop New Mexico's first statewide victimization survey and neighborhood and crime survey of Albuquerque. Creation of the surveys will provide an overview of statewide criminal behavior, as well as examine the relationship between neighborhood dynamics and criminal violence locally. In addition, the SAC is requesting funds to identify projects to be developed for publication and presentation, specifically those related to domestic violence protection orders and reentry.
