Criminal Justice Planning

The goal of Criminal Justice Planning is to assist policy makers in better planning for the expected population of correctional facilities, intermediate sanctions, and other criminal justice services and programs.  Criminal Justice Planning’s main focus is to forecast inmate populations under correctional supervision by the use of computer modeling.  Criminal Justice Planning currently presents an annual report which predicts and assesses the five-year correctional inmate population for Davidson County.  Additionally, the department is available to provide accurate data and credible analysis to policy makers when making decisions for the Davidson County Justice System.
