 Kyle Baudoin, Policy Development Coordinator and SAC Director

Kyle Baudoin, a former police officer and academician, began working at the Office of Policy and Management in the late summer of 2014.  Mr. Baudoin co-authors the Annual Recidivism Report and the Annual Prison Forecast and has taken over as the Principal Author of the "Monthly Indicators Report". He conducts quantitative and qualitative research and writes reports and presents findings for policy and operations level consumption. Mr. Baudoin spearheads efforts to collaborate on interagency policy and data sharing initiatives. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University in Political Science and then served as a police officer for 10 years prior to joining the Criminal Justice Policy and Planning Division. Mr. Baudoin used his interpersonal skills developed as a police detective to complete a qualitative study at Connecticut’s Walker Intake Unit. “The Walker Project” is a first-of-its-kind study in Connecticut; and approaches research from a humanistic viewpoint, shattering perceptions of offenders, humanizing data and producing an untapped wealth of knowledge.
