Strategic Planning

For more than 25 years, the Center has assisted justice systems in every state, as well as hundreds of counties, regions, U.S. territories, and tribal communities, to mobilize for informed change through a wide range of strategic planning, assessment, and implementation services including:

  • Facilitating system changes by providing targeted, system wide and issue specific strategic planning;
  • Assisting with the application of new perspectives, knowledge, and skills to agencies by synthesizing contemporary research and practice literature, coaching policymakers in its application to agency and system-wide practice, and designing and conducting individualized trainings for agency staff at all levels; and
  • Providing guidance about the management of offenders by delivering tailored and specialized services to assist agencies with informed and targeted policies and practices for offender populations.

The Center supports the integration of innovative criminal and juvenile justice philosophies and practices into the daily work of policymakers and practitioners.
