Assessment studies are analyses of jail systems, conducted by objective, outside experts hired by a county to analyze the operations of the current jail system and make recommendations for improvements. Assessments can be comprehensive or specific in scope.
Prison & Local Jail classification studies
The JFA Institute designs, re-designs, and validates classification instruments and assesses classification systems with reliability studies and reviews of policies and procedures.
Prison & Local Jail Population Projections
The JFA Institute uses our proprietary software The Wizard Simulation to build models of prison and jail systems and forecast their populations.
Jail stress tests
Jail assessments can be focused on analysis of specific areas of reform a locality is interested in and then developing strategies to successfully integrate these reforms into the existing jail system.
Statewide & Local Jail Risk Assessment Instruments (Design, Re-design, and Validation)
The JFA Institute designs, re-designs, and validates risk assessment instruments for parole, probation and local jail systems.
