Welcome to BJA’s Center for Research Partnerships and Program Evaluation (CRPPE)

BJA’s CRPPE provides visitors with information on practitioner-researcher partnerships, performance measures, logic models, program evaluation, and other important information to devise solutions to improve the quality, quantity, and equity of criminal justice and public safety services.

The FY16 Evaluation & Research Literature: The State of Knowledge on BJA-Funded Programs document provides information on evaluations, reports, and research related to BJA-funded programs. This report also identifies programs and practices with a solid foundation of evidence, while also providing information on those programs/practices that may benefit from additional research and evaluation.
