How Our Resources Work for You

The CCJPR offers a range of resources:

Survey research

We provide state-of-the art methodologies for research projects, gathering primary data through a variety of techniques. These methodologies include telephone or in-person interviews, mail or web-based surveys, and focus groups. Working with stakeholders/organizations, we develop questions and create user-friendly survey designs and formats. We will also conduct pilot testing, survey implementation, and data analysis. We will provide subsequent reporting of results

Evaluation research

Evaluation research is the systematic application of research methodologies to the assessment of social intervention programs. CCJPR evaluations are methodologically rigorous and in keeping with contemporary practice. We utilize responsive, culturally sensitive research approaches. Our staff excels in both qualitative and quantitative research methods and is knowledgeable in the design and implementation of formative process and summative/outcome evaluation projects.

Policy analysis

Using established criteria to evaluate policy options for potential economic, social, and political impact, we review the components and performance of programs, projects, or systems. Our evaluations are designed to monitor program activities and suggest improvement. Through our analyses of outcomes and effectiveness, we provide recommendations and direction to policy makers. We also use in-depth research and objective evaluation methods to provide "best practice" program/policy information and assessment in a given field.

Primary and secondary data analysis

We conduct analysis of primary and secondary quantitative data. Outputs range from simple descriptive statistics to sophisticated multivariate analyses and modeling. Analysis of primary and secondary qualitative data includes collecting and analyzing data from focus groups, in-person interviews, observations, document analysis, and records review.

Grant support

We also conduct searches for funding opportunities, assist with strategizing approach, craft letters of intent write and/or edit full submissions, and provide project management. An Executive Office of Public Safety grant is currently funding an initiative to consider alternatives to incarceration.
