Supporting mission-driven organizations
Mission-driven organizations like non-profits may not have the time or capacity to dedicate to collecting, managing, analyzing, and visualizing data. Empact Solutions has worked with non-profits that work to reform justice systems to create systems for collecting or managing data, building relationships with entities that have the data, and then creating meaningful analyses that guide recommendations for policy, practice, or process.
MULTI-SITE DETENTION TRENDS
Monthly Detention Survey
Empact Solutions partners with the Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF) to survey youth justice agencies to report on youth detention trends. It captures data in close to real time from a large group of jurisdictions that spans all regions of the United States and ranges from large urban counties to small rural courts.
As part of a national campaign to end the use of solitary confinement within the justice system, Unlock the Box collects and stores legislation data in multiple spreadsheets. They needed a way to more efficiently analyze this data and make it accessible to different end-users.
Law enforcement Diversion
Law Enforcement Data Analysis
The Center for Children’s Law and Policy (CCLP) works closely with local youth justice agencies to help them expand and enhance diversion opportunities. Empact worked with CCLP to navigate relationships with data management professionals, obtain meaningful data to identify potential areas for change, and develop recommendations for implementing diversion.
Behavioral health & Youth justice
Behavioral Health Monitoring Tool
Empact Solutions partners with a large university to identify and address gaps in the cascade of substance use care for youth involved in the youth justice system.
