Illinois Juvenile Justice Commission

The majority of CPRD’s juvenile justice work has been in partnership with the Illinois Juvenile Justice Commission. Some current and past projects with the IJJC include the analysis of statewide juvenile transfer data, a qualitative analysis of Disproportionate Minority Contact in the Illinois Juvenile Justice System; development and maintenance of JMIS (an Illinois statewide juvenile detention data system), providing mandated and ad hoc data reporting and analysis using JMIS data; and technical assistance to local Juvenile Justice Councils to help them collect and understand their data for informed decision making.
