Recidiviz

We are a non-profit building technical solutions to help decision makers
understand how the criminal justice system is performing in real time.

Mission

We arm decision makers with the data they need to diagnose issues, monitor
the success of ongoing initiatives, and guide planning and policy.

Project Pulse

Automatically collect, standardize, and centralize corrections data to create a rigorous baseline. Calculate granular metrics on an ongoing basis.

Project Vitals

Make data and metrics from Project Pulse available to decision-makers and stakeholders in actionable formats. Tailor reports to key decision criteria to help states and jurisdictions predict whether they will meet their year-end goals.

Project Triage

Enable decision makers to add external datasets on in-prison programming (education, work opportunities), post-release programming, or other factors to Project Pulse data to form a more complete picture. Serve as a mechanism for independently verifying which programs are driving desired outcomes.
