This NIJ Conference Panel will explore the development and use of evidence-based policies, programs and technologies to improve effectiveness and efficiencies related to government. Through casual observation, practices and programs may appear to be effective, but under closer scrutiny the results may look much different. We can improve our confidence in observed results and the information we share by carefully collecting evidence and using it in decision-making, thereby improving the effectiveness and efficiency of activities across the full range of criminal and juvenile justice challenges. Panelists will provide examples from government, law enforcement and research on how evidence can be applied to make more efficient use of government funding.

Moderator: Phelan Wyrick, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of Justice Programs

Panelists:

  • Stephanie Shipman, Assistant Director, Center for Evaluation Methods and Issues, Applied Research and Methods, U.S. Government Accountability Office
