Understanding gendered pathways into the juvenile justice system equips providers with ways to effectively focus on the complex needs, vulnerabilities, trends, and opportunities of each gender's unique experiences. Sexuality and gender identity lenses are equally important to create an environment that elevates lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer/gender nonconforming and transgender youth who identify with female and/or male development, or neither, and varying sexualities, allowing them to be more of who they are.

CitiStat was a data-driven management strategy designed to monitor and improve the performance of all city services in real time. Founded on the core concepts of Compstat, the CitiStat model involved a series of weekly meetings that focused on improving the effectiveness across city agencies to address complex safety issues. As gun crime became prioritized within the process, the CitiStat model was utilized to focus solely on the targeted enforcement and prosecution of felony gun crimes, and soon became known on a national level as GunStat.
Police body-worn cameras (BWCs) have diffused rapidly in law enforcement in the United States and abroad over the last few years. The rapid diffusion of police BWCs has been driven, in part, by findings from a handful of early research studies which suggest cameras can produce a range of positive outcomes, including reductions in use of force and citizen complaints, enhanced prosecution outcomes, and increased perceptions of procedural justice among citizens.
Body worn cameras (BWCs) have been in the news for the past couple of years. To better educate local governments on the trending issues surrounding this topic, Leonard Matarese will lead a discussion with the CNA Institute for Public Research, which directs and coordinates technical assistance regarding BWCs for the hundreds of police agencies that have received funding in recent years from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) under the BWC Policy and Implementation Program (PIP).
