Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $80,000)

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.

The New York SAC, located within the Department of Criminal Justice Services Office of Justice Research and Performance, will use funds to complete the following projects: 1) collaborate with participating state agencies to collect and case match criminal history data to produce reports on felony drug criminal processing, drug court activity, and other drug law reform-related issues, such as the examination of changes in plea practices and sentencing outcomes; 2) collaborate with the New York State Police and county and municipal law enforcement agencies to collect data and prepare the 2012 Hate Crime Report; 3) extract domestic violence homicide data from the Uniform Crime Report's Supplemental Homicide Reporting file and complete the 2012 Domestic Homicide Report with a six-year trend analysis; and 4) continue the state's efforts to monitor hundreds of performance metrics specifically by producing a comprehensive Public Safety Performance Management Report, monthly DNA operational reports and case listings, and approximately 35 program-specific performance reports that will be distributed to criminal justice system officials and/or posted to the state's Crimestat suite on the ejusticeNY website.
