"Our policy work is conducted through the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Each year, more than 6,000 experts...volunteer their time to serve on hundreds of study committees that examine some of society's most pressing issues. The reports that result from their efforts often form the basis of public policy for decades to come. In addition, members of standing committees and roundtables provide ongoing advice and guidance on a range of issues."
The mission of the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) is to facilitate research in criminal justice and criminology, through the preservation, enhancement, and sharing of computerized data resources; through the production of original research based on archived data; and through specialized training workshops in quantitative analysis of crime and justice data.
Our mission is to improve government decision making and public policy, increase public understanding, and promote the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge in matters involving science, engineering, technology, and health. Our independent, expert reports and other scientific activities inform policies and actions that have the power to improve the lives of people in the U.S. and around the world.
