Featured Resource

OJP Diagnostic Center
The purpose of the Diagnostic Center is to facilitate the translation of data and research into public safety and criminal justice policy and practice at the state, local and tribal levels. The Diagnostic Center helps community leaders use local data to select and implement data-driven programs and practices, such as those found on CrimeSolutions.gov.

Additional Resources

Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP)
Supported in part by OJP’s Bureau of Justice Assistance, George Mason University’s CEBCP seeks to make scientific research a key component in decisions about crime and justice policies. The CEBCP carries out this mission by advancing rigorous studies in criminal justice and criminology through research-practice collaborations, and proactively serving as an informational and translational link to practitioners and the policy community. CEBCP efforts include:

  • Evidence-Based Policing Matrix
    The Evidence-Based Policing Matrix is a research-to-practice translation tool that organizes all of these studies visually, allowing agencies and researchers to view the field of research from its generalizations to its particulars.
  • Matrix Demonstration Project
    The Matrix Demonstration Project collaborates with multiple police agencies and international organizations to develop free tools that police officers, analysts, and researchers can use to translate research findings into daily practice.

The Campbell Collaboration
With some support from OJP’s National Institute of Justice, the Campbell Collaboration (C2) helps people make well-informed decisions by preparing, maintaining and disseminating systematic reviews in education, crime and justice, social welfare and international development.

OJP Training and Technical Assistance
The Training and Technical Assistance (T&TA) section of the OJP site captures information about OJP and OJP-funded T&TA resources focusing on a variety of topics and for different justice fields.
