The Justice Policy focus area seeks to inform policy development and practice in civil, criminal, and social justice systems in Maine and nationally. Our applied research, training, and technical assistance builds capacity and improves community health and public safety. Staff bring their experience in research methods, program assessment and evaluation, and policy development to areas such as juvenile recidivism, violence against women, victim assistance, and justice system statistical analysis.
Below is a sample list of current Justice Policy projects:
- Place Matters
- Statistical Analysis Center (SAC)
- Violence Against Women Measuring Effective Initiative (VAWA MEI)
