Check out a full list of media coverage for the NDSC Criminal Justice Data Initiative: Year 1 Wrap Report here.

The past decade has elevated the urgent need for police reform, brought to the forefront by high-profile police killings and movements like #BlackLivesMatter. To better understand conceptions of public safety and support the growing public interest in criminal justice reform, the USC Price Center for Social Innovation partnered with Microsoft and the USC Price Safe Communities Institute to launch the NDSC Criminal Justice Data Initiative in the spring of 2019. The project featured three main components —

  • A community engagement process that included stakeholder convenings and listening sessions to understand how law enforcement and community representatives think about public safety and use data in their work;
  • Public safety data collection, aggregation and dissemination at the neighborhood level; and
  • Storytelling that pairs data analysis with narrative-based insights into public safety trends across Los Angeles County neighborhoods.

The NDSC Criminal Justice Data Initiative: Year 1 Wrap Report provides an overview of the project strategy along with key findings from analyses of listening sessions and public safety data, including arrests, stops by police, and calls for service.
