Measures for Justice is on a mission to make accurate criminal justice data available to spur reform.
We do this by:
- showing people what criminal justice looks like nationwide;
- helping to standardize and improve criminal justice data nationwide;
- offering tools, services, and research to 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.
