Identifying Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Systems through Data Collection

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center with funding support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance

This webinar discusses how data can be used to help identify racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile and criminal justice systems, determine the best course of action to address disparities, and track progress toward reduction goals. Webinar participants learn about national trends, as well as how data can be collected and analyzed. They will also hear about one jurisdiction’s experience using data to enhance policies and practices that reduced disparities. This webinar is especially useful for juvenile and adult correctional agencies, reentry coordinators, probation and parole staff, and other stakeholders.
