Statistical Analysis Center


The Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) serves as the research arm of the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission. SAC was created to collect, analyze and report on the state of criminal justice issues in Arizona by evaluating programs and policies as requested by the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission or required by statute for local, state and federal criminal justice agencies. The SAC contributes to statewide policy development in numerous areas by providing statistical research and analyses of the criminal justice system in Arizona. The SAC is the statewide equivalent of the national Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and is an active member of the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA).

In addition to research responsibilities, the Statistical Analysis Center facilitates the sharing of information and data about Arizona’s criminal and juvenile justice systems to policymakers, practitioners, and the general public. For this purpose, SAC oversees a Community Data Project that provides access to a variety of measures of justice system and related activity. The Community Data Project’s web-based tool is an interactive application that allows users to create maps, data tables, charts, and graphs that are specific to users’ needs.
