The Importance of Evidence-Based Juvenile Justice Policy

The Vera Institute of Justice, through their Vera Voices Series, conducted interviews with Steve Aos, associate director of the Washington State Institute for Public Policy. The presentation, Informing Justice Policy Through Cost-Benefit Analysis, is a six part series that addresses ways of using evidenced-based public policy to reduce incarceration, crime and criminal justice costs. The series includes information on using evidence to determine program and policy success (i.e. what works and what doesn’t) as well as the importance of considering the costs and benefits to the community before policy is implemented.

For a framework to connect policy to results.
