Overview

In addition, evidence-based policies, programs, and practices have emerged as expected (and sometimes required) approaches to processing and treating juvenile and adult offenders. The use of evidence-based interventions, however, must be incorporated effectively into justice system operations and services for successful outcomes to occur. This monograph and subsequent expected publications are meant to aid those persons who work in and around the criminal and juvenile justice systems and are interested in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their individual agencies or court system.

This initial offering focuses on demonstrating leadership and understanding organizational culture and growth as key initial aspects of becoming an evidence-based organization. Future publications will examine the topics of strategic planning and action planning; preparing for successful implementation and monitoring; and evaluating and sustaining organizational services and innovations over time. Essentially, this comprehensive strategy is based on the premise that current justice system operations are flawed, but they are redeemable through enhanced leadership, planning, and evaluation approaches that can be integrated effectively with evidence-based policies, programs, and practices.
