Evidence Based Decision Making (EBDM)
Milwaukee is one of seven cities accross the United States chosen to participate in the Evidence-Based Decision Making in Local Criminal Justice Systems Initiatives (EBDMI) an opportunity sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Corrections (NIC), and the Office of Justice Programs (OJP). This is a technical assistance award. An update on this initiatve is provided at each Council meeting. Milwaukee's commitment to the discipline of EBDM will enable us to hold offenders accountable, reduce the overall crime rate and recidivism, and give tax payers a better return on the dollars they invest in the criminal justice system. Currently, Milwaukee is in phase three of this initiative.
