This webinar provides foundational information and lessons learned to begin the journey of using data to assess offender accountability in a community. It is designed from the perspective of a Community Response Team (CRT) using data to find out “how they are doing” in holding offenders accountable. Looking at criminal justice performance measures requires looking at agency performance in the context of the CRT, but this is not about assessing individual workers in agencies. By establishing a baseline for your own community, you can compare year to year and have an idea about whether certain interventions or policies make a difference. Examples are used about the process we’ve undertaken and where we have yet to go.
