RESEARCH & VALIDATION
To maintain the health of your agency’s evidence-based practice and to find out how effective your efforts are at reducing recidivism, your Risk Need Assessments require assessments of their own. Our team of highly skilled in-house researchers are dedicated to the exploration of new ideas and tools in criminal justice. In addition, they successfully lead and complete agency-specific validation studies for those jurisdictions across the country seeking input on the usefulness and validity of the assessments they use.
