"Did it work? Using Operational Analysis to Measure Success"

Is your agency planning to implement a new strategy to combat crime? Or better yet, has your agency asked you to evaluate a program that has been put into action? Are you now tasked with figuring out how to evaluate such a program? This presentation will address some aspects of program evaluations so that you as the analyst can strategically and accurately measure success. The best place for the analyst is to be in the beginning discussion of program implementation - before any new program is implemented. However, this is not always the case and the analyst has to gather measures from the data that is available. This class will cover some of the things analysts “need to know before they need to know,” as well as what you can do with data that is already available.

Check out the training page for all the details!
