The Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative in Idaho

The Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative in Idaho

This page was updated in July 2018 to note the conclusion of the state’s work with the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative.

Background

In February 2011, Idaho became the first state to partner with the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative. The Idaho Criminal Justice Commission, or ICJC, a 25-member body representing the three branches of Idaho state government, invited Results First to work with them to inform public policy decisions in criminal justice.

The commission was created in 2005 to address issues and challenges in the area of criminal justice through the development of balanced, cost-effective solutions based on best practices. It has made measurable progress in advancing evidence-based practices in criminal justice system. 

Implementation

Results First began to work with the ICJC in 2011 to incorporate adult criminal justice data into the model. In May 2014, the Idaho Results First team presented their analysis of the state’s adult criminal justice programs to the ICJC.
