How Your State Can Make Data-Informed Decisions for Safer Supervised Populations

Surging violence in incarcerated populations has tragic outcomes. Learn how data can help stop violence before it happens.

About the webinar

Agencies responsible for criminal supervision must maintain a safe, secure and healthy environment for those who live and work within the organization.

Over the last decade, prisons, jails and agencies responsible for supervision have seen an increase in violence that has led to loss of life for both employees and offenders.

The surge in violence has led to an increase in health care and worker’s compensation costs while negatively impacting workforce confidence.

Learn how the Iowa Department of Corrections used SAS to help move to a proactive model from a reactive one – improving efficiency, getting the best insight into its supervised populations and supporting data-driven decisions to make employees, offenders and its communities safer.
