About us


Recent social and political events that have affected the United States and its criminal justice system have led to a great deal of interest regarding the understanding and analysis of data. Although great efforts have been made in recent years to capture essential criminal justice data specific to motor vehicle contacts with the police, use of force incidents, and in custody deaths, there is a clear gap in the analysis and policy recommendations relevant to these data points. Therefore, the purpose of the proposed Institute will be to address the existing gap and other data analytic needs in the criminal justice system.

The Institute for Predictive Analytics in Criminal Justice’s (IPAC) central mission is to advance research in criminal justice through the analysis of data with the goal of developing and implementing evidence-based-policy and practices.
