Research, Analysis & Evaluation


The CJPAC Research Workgroup meets monthly, drawing together research, operations and data professionals from key Criminal Justice agencies that meet regularly to discuss:
  • collaborative interagency research projects,
  • develop population projections and forecasts,
  • share and identify appropriate data resources, and
  • assist in the production of the Division’s monthly and annual reports.
The CJPAC Research Workgroup is facilitated by the Office of Policy and Management, CJPPD Research, Analysis & Evaluation Unit.
