ICJI Research Partnership

Services: Crime analysis, Policy studies, Policy analysis, Survey design, Benchmarking/indicators

Research Areas: Criminal Justice, Public Safety

Over the past decade, PPI has partnered with the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) to address critical issues related to Indiana’s justice systems including: crime prevention; drug and alcohol abuse associated with crime; law enforcement; sentencing and corrections; and, traffic safety; including program assessments of 12 federal grant programs conducted by PPI on behalf of ICJI between January 2006 and June 2008. In an effort to assist ICJI in improving criminal justice programming and policy development in Indiana, PPI entered into a 2-year research partnership (beginning in June 2011) to perform critical data collection and analytical tasks in two broad research areas identified as priorities by ICJI. The scope of work includes 1) a review of best practices for all Victims Services division programs and primary program areas under ICJI’s Drug and Crime Control division and Youth Services funding streams, and 2) a statewide justice data records assessment that will serve as a first step in developing a statewide crime data collaboration that could emulate the nationally recognized traffic safety records collaboration facilitated by ICJI.
