Measuring Criminal Justice Success in Responding to VAWA Crimes


In 2020, OVW funded VAWA MEI and the Justice Information Resource Network (JIRN) to develop and pilot test a set of indicators for gauging success in the criminal justice system’s response to VAWA crimes. Many of the products developed as a result of this project can help victim service providers, law enforcement, and researchers start thinking about measuring the benefits of their work.
