Research and Statistics Branch
CPJA’s Research & Statistics Branch through its partnership with the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, is Hawaii’s federally-designated Statistical Analysis Center and works closely with the national Justice Information Research Network. The Branch directs the state Uniform Crime Reporting Program in partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Hawaii’s county police departments (HPD, HCPD, MPD, KPD). Branch publications provide critical, comprehensive data and analysis to the Attorney General and other criminal justice agencies and professionals, legislators, crime prevention and community mobilization groups, academic and research institutions, service providers, news media, and the general public. These reports and data provide an objective framework for the consideration of crime problems facing Hawaii. Branch staff also provide technical assistance and serve on several crime-related committees.
