"OJP's [Office of Justice Program's] research and statistical programs help the criminal and juvenile justice communities address public safety issues from grassroots to national levels. We share information on innovative programs and identify those which are most effective. OJP places a strong emphasis on the scientific underpinnings of evidence-based solutions to help steer ourselves and our partners in the field toward a safe and secure future. This chapter details some of the dramatic advances made in FY 2011 in OJP's ability to translate evidence about what works for practitioners and policymakers in the field. OJP's signature efforts to prioritize scientific inquiry in the criminal justice field came under the umbrella of our Evidence Integration Initiative (E2I), begun in 2009."
