Tulare County Joins CSAC Support Hub
January 23, 2020
Last week, Tulare County became the 11th county to be added to the network of counties in the CSAC Support Hub- a capacity-building initiative designed to assist counties in increasing their use of data and evidence to make informed decisions about criminal justice programs and their benefits.
Over the next year, the CSAC Support Hub team will work with the Tulare County Probation Department to develop an inventory of programs, conduct a cost-benefit analysis, and provide support on how to use project finding to drive meaningful changes or improvements in local criminal justice efforts. Both the Tulare County Board of Supervisors and the Community Corrections Partnerships have enthusiastically endorsed the project and are excited to have access to this free resource to help them achieve positive outcomes in community supervision.
For the last 5 years, the CSAC Support Hub has partnered with 10 counties and empowered them to take deep dives into their local criminal justice systems to understand programmatic best practices, improve implementation of interventions, and understand the impact of programs on recidivism through cost-benefit analysis.
Los Angeles, Contra Costa, and Stanislaus counties will also be launching projects with the CSAC Support Hub over the next month. These four counties will join Alameda, Fresno, Kern, Nevada, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Ventura, and Yolo counties as part of a statewide network of counties working to incorporate data-driven and evidence-based practices into their criminal justice programs.
