The full collection of resources available through the Data-Driven Justice Resource Library is provided here, including information on building community support, identifying high utilizers, using and sharing data, diverting to what, strengthening the pretrial system, funding and sustainability and webinars/call logs/other events. Learning from experts and peers is an important part of developing, planning, implementing and scaling successful data-driven justice strategies that address the needs of individuals who repeatedly cycle through jails, emergency rooms, shelters and other services and those who can safely remain in the community pending trial. Community leaders are encouraged to use these resources when pursing and launching data-driven justice initiatives in order to more effectively serve their community.
