Performance Measurement for Justice Information System Projects

The crafting of performance measures and those for criminal justice information sharing are discussed. “The guide helps managers, staff, and executives develop measures in two ways: by offering comments and advice on the process of developing measures, and by providing a catalog of workable examples for specific types of project” (p. 1). Nine chapters are contained in this publication: introduction-what performance measures are; which goals the project helps us achieve; how the project assists us in achieving our goals; what the best measures of the agency’s goals are; how performance measures can best be implemented; introduction to performance measures for criminal justice information sharing; summary of performance measures; project type examples from the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) to the Warrant Depository; and how to use this guide and final thoughts. An appendix explains the Chain of Results and Logic Model.
