The Diagnostic Center works closely with communities to understand persistent criminal justice challenges and create customized solutions to address them. The Diagnostic Center employs a practice-based research model to address a wide range of justice topics ranging from human trafficking and gun violence to corrections officer wellness and building community trust. The Diagnostic Center is comprised of criminal justice experts, many of them former law enforcement themselves, who possess the experience and hands-on knowledge necessary to implement effective and enduring change at the state, city and tribal level. Diagnostic Specialists use comprehensive research, program evaluations, local data and collaborative partnerships to help government executives and community leaders develop multi-jurisdictional, cross-disciplinary solutions. The level of data collection, stakeholder engagement and continued support necessary to evaluate and mitigate the factors contributing to a community’s public safety challenge is variable. As a result, the Diagnostic Center offers technical assistance that is tailored to each community’s unique needs.
If you believe that your community or organization can benefit from the Diagnostic Center’s technical assistance, please submit a request for assistance.
