About Innovations Suite

Transforming Criminal Justice through Research and Innovation

BJA’s Innovations Suite of programs covers every aspect of the criminal justice system. The common theme across these programs is to use research, data, and analysis to identify what is working in the field to reduce crime and recidivism and to increase system efficiency, effectiveness, and fairness. The Innovations Suite of programs represents a strategic approach that creates innovation by linking the deep understanding of criminal justice professionals with the systematic analytical tools of researchers.  These partnerships leverage innovative applications of analysis, technology, and evidence-based practices with the goal of improving performance and effectiveness while containing costs.  Ultimately, of course, the goal is to enhance public safety and promote justice.
