About Us

Measures for Justice is changing the future of criminal justice by developing solutions that help communities, including the institutions that serve them, reshape how the criminal justice system works.

We do this to:

  1. show people what criminal justice looks like nationwide;
  2. help standardize and improve criminal justice data nationwide;
  3. ensure people can use the data to best effect.

Bottom line: The only way our criminal justice system can improve is by monitoring its performance, isolating what works and what doesn’t, and developing interventions based on fact. For all this work, data are critical.
