The State Justice Statistics (SJS) program for Statistical Analysis Centers (SAC) is administered by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) of the United States Department of Justice. The purpose of the program is to provide partial support to state governments for the establishment and operation of Statistical Analysis Centers to collect, analyze, and report statistics on crime and justice to federal, state, and local levels of government, and to share state-level information nationally.
Since 1975, the Statistical Analysis Center of the Public Safety Grant Administration Office has performed a critical role in providing decision-makers with information on crime and the criminal justice system. The issues addressed by the Statistical Analysis Center span the entire criminal justice system and include juvenile delinquency, violent crime, property crime, and systems improvement issues.
