Fenris helped a California county office design governance and infrastructure to improve data collection, analysis and information sharing across agencies and contracted service providers towards improved reentry services and reduced recidivism.
We partnered with the Office of Recidivism and Justice (ORJ) under the County Administrator, and through interviews and conversations worked with multiple stakeholders including the Sherriff’s office, the Probation Department, the county Court, and community based organizations (CBOs). A presentation of our methodology, deliverables, and recommendations for re-entry data management was provided in-person to the Community Corrections Partnership Executive Committee.
Our recommendations were developed to advance the County’s ability to understand and improve criminal justice outcomes and recidivism, and to provide a technical and governance approach that could serve as a model to other counties across the state and country. The importance and timeliness of this work is emphasized by the need for california counties to improve and understand recidivism programs under AB109.
Our small execution team consisted of Aman and Louis Potok from Fenris and our sponsor at Tetra Tech DPK. We engaged Ethical Resolve to conduct and provide an independent ethical review of our data governance approach.
