Research and Planning    

Strategy BoardProviding program evaluations, policy analysis, and performance tracking, the Research and Planning Division (R&P) is an integral part of strategic planning efforts in Mecklenburg County. R&P's products contribute to increased efficiency and effectiveness within the criminal justice system by supporting objective, evidence-based decision making. 

R&P is also tasked with researching, developing, piloting, and implementing new projects and programs aligned with the Criminal Justice Services mission of reducing criminal justice involvement and strengthening the well-being of the community.

Strategic Initiatives

Justice System Dashboards: The dashboards will be web-based tools designed to provide citizens an interactive, high-level overview of criminal justice system activity.

Data Warehouse: The data warehouse is a repository of information from the record management systems of the Arrest Processing Center, the Mecklenburg County Jail, and the Mecklenburg County Courts and allows staff to access comprehensive data on the criminal justice system.

Performance Monitoring and Evaluation

Research and Planning assists all CJS programs in developing performance monitoring systems for internal use. This effort is to ensure supportive work environments for CJS staff, as well as, effective programming for Mecklenburg County residents.

R&P has facilitated training for five county employees to become certified in administering the Correctional Program Checklist assessment tool (CPC). This validated, standardized tool provides scores on how closely programs that serve justice-involved populations are meeting known principles of effective intervention. Feedback and recommendations are also included in the final assessment product. Please contact us for more information on obtaining a CPC assessment for your organization.
