Our Core Values

Nonpartisanship
We work with groups across the political spectrum to improve criminal justice data in the United States.
Rigor
We use a thoughtful, thorough, and clear methodology that holds up to external standards for accuracy and quality.
Transparency
We share our findings with all constituencies, regardless of what we discover. We are open about our processes and methods.
Accountability
We do what we say. We build trust through demonstrated action, honesty, and accountability to both each other and our greater community. When we make mistakes, we own up to them immediately.
Collaboration
We are responsive to our stakeholders. We present our findings and build tools that are useful for others to act upon. We take feedback and outside recommendations into consideration before we present ideas or create new products.
