Our mission is to gather data, analyze it, and provide high-value knowledge including trends, root causes, best practices, innovative ideas and recommendations to guide the Department in its mission to reduce juvenile delinquency through effective prevention, intervention, and treatment services.
The Bureau of Research and Planning is responsible for informing the Department's leadership, as well as the public, on the effectiveness of all juvenile justice activities funded by the State of Florida. Researchers are responsible for answering day-to-day operation, data or research-related questions posed by the Department's leadership team as well as requests received from other critical stakeholders, such as the Governor's Office and Legislature. During 2011, the Bureau of Research and Planning responded to 769 requests for research assistance from stakeholders and decision makers throughout Florida.
All research activities that come into contact with youth who interact with DJJ or access their data must be approved through the Institutional Review Board managed by Research and Planning. In addition, data provided by the Bureau of Research and Planning is used to guide the development of effective programs and mold the Department's strategy.
Each year, the Bureau of Research and Planning releases a series of reports and analyses that can be used to assess delinquency throughout Florida as well as the State's prevention and intervention activities. To accomplish this, staff uses data and information from the Juvenile Justice Information System (JJIS), which is one of the largest state-operated juvenile justice databases in the United States. JJIS currently contains detailed delinquency and placement information for over one million youth dating back to the year 2000. Data Integrity Officers throughout the state ensure that the data in JJIS is accurate and provide training to thousands of Department and contracted provider staff.
