The development of research-informed policy is developed and honed by leveraging the expertise of partners and sharing of information across systems.


The Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCJJ) along with the Juvenile Justice Oversight Committee (JJOC), Utah Board of Juvenile Justice (UBJJ) and the Racial and Ethnic Disparities (RED) Advisory Committee works collaboratively to identify, access, and share relevant data to ensure members of state leadership, juvenile justice agencies, communities, families and youths have access to information on issues that impacts them the most. This open data sharing process also allows for input in places where improvement is needed and for change to ensue.
