Post Date:10/30/2015 2:06 PM

Eau Claire County – Eau Claire County was recently invited to attend a Data-Driven Justice meeting that was co-hosted by White House and The Justice Management Institute in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, October 28th.

Tiana Glenna, Criminal Justice Collaborating Council (CJCC) Coordinator, attended the day-long workshop that focused on ways to accelerate justice system data sharing to reduce incarceration, link people more effectively with services in the community, and share high-impact ways to use data to solve other systemic challenges.

“This is not just about Eau Claire County being asked to attend the meeting in Washington D.C.,” stated Tiana Glenna, “but about the work we have done in this county through the informed guidance and use of data.”

Many members of the National Network of Criminal Justice Coordinating Councils were in attendance along with presenters from the White House including Jerry Abramson, Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, Neil Eggleston, White House Counsel, DJ Patil, U.S. Chief Data Scientist, Vanita Gupta, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General, and Roy Austin, Deputy Assistant to the President for Urban Affairs, Justice, and Opportunity.

The group shared the biggest problems they face in their jurisdictions and brainstormed solutions.
An increasing number of state and local communities use cross-system data sharing to (1) implement already-proven evidence-based reforms and (2) pilot and test new innovations with a rapid feedback loop to continue what works and change what doesn’t.

In 2011, The Justice Management Institute, Pretrial Justice Institute and The National Association of Counties brought together the top leaders of CJCC across the nation to form the National CJCC network. Eau Claire County was selected as one of six for the advisory group. The goal of the national project is to strengthen the ability of local level policy makers to improve Criminal Justice Planning and policy development.
