Roundtable: Evidence-Based Repositories: Past Progress and Future Directions

Fri, Nov 16, 2:00 to 3:20pm, Marriott, Area 4, Skyline Level

Session Submission Type: Roundtable Session


Evidence-based repositories emerged from the need to determine “what works, what doesn’t and what’s promising” in crime prevention. The 1998 Maryland Report offered the first insight into what scientific evidence suggests about crime prevention programming. The development of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s Model Programs Guide and, later, the Office of Justice Programs’/National Institute of Justice’s came about from this evidence-based movement. The two repositories continue to be rich resources for practitioners and communities in enhancing their understanding of the effectiveness of programs and practices related to juvenile and criminal justice. What future directions can evidence-based repositories take to continue to meet the needs of communities and jurisdictions? The panel will discuss the history of evidence-based repositories and what new and innovative directions lie ahead.
