The Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) for the District of Columbia was established on April 30, 2001 by Mayor’s Order 2001-58 to provide a division dedicated to the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information about the District’s criminal and juvenile justice systems. The SAC, a unit of CJCC, is responsible for independent research and analysis.
The mission of the SAC is to apply the highest level of scientific rigor and objectivity in the study of criminal justice policies, programs and practices, and to identify activities that improve the administration of justice. The SAC aims to produce empirical research and analysis that informs stakeholders and enhances policy decision-making in the District.
