New Webinar to Look Deeper at JDAI Results Data

Posted July 10, 2017, By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

Released on the 25th anniversary of the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative®, JDAI at 25: Insights From the Annual Results Reports draws on eight years of data to highlight how participating sites have achieved significant and — in many cases — long-lasting reductions in rates of juvenile incarceration and juvenile crime. In a new webinar from the Casey Foundation, experts walk through the publication’s data and its importance to detention reform.

JDAI has always emphasized the critical importance of data-driven decision making as a core strategy. During this online event, attendees will take away key insights from the JDAI annual results reports and dig deeper into both site-level and initiative-wide data included in the reports. In addition, attendees will offer input to the Casey Foundation on ways to promote and support continuous data-driven learning and improvement across JDAI that:

  • takes full advantage of the large JDAI network;
  • uses more advanced technology;
  • provides greater insight into racial disparities and other areas of focus for JDAI sites;
  • is more responsive to the needs and challenges of sites across the initiative; and
  • focuses JDAI’s data strategies, not just on measuring progress to date, but also on guiding the priorities and direction of detention reform into the future.
