Seminar Series

Coming soon! The Virtual Academy seminar series will showcase innovative analytic projects from departments of corrections (DOCs) across the country.  Participants will learn how research directors and analytic teams have leveraged their own data to help their DOC leaders address operational challenges and implement data-driven decision-making through the development of custom analyses and tools.

Aimed at corrections analysts and research directors, the seminars will go into specifics on how the project was executed, with the goal of sparking ideas for how you might help address similar challenges within your own state system.

Topics covered during the seminar series may include the following (and more):

  • Population management
  • Personnel and hiring analyses
  • Population projections
  • Housing and classification
  • Health care
  • Safety
  • Program evaluation
  • Recidivism and returns to custody
