Database is developed by Civicore and maintained by Adler University – Institute of Public Safety and Social Justice. The RJ Hubs collaborative has worked closely with Civicore to ensure that the database reflects the data that we would like to collect and analyze. Each organization has a separate contract with Civicore and owns their own data however the data fields are uniform across all organizations.

The database is shared by all organizations which allows the collaborative to provide reports that look at trends and changes over time across all seven neighborhoods that the RJ Hubs are currently based in. The reporting feature also allows each organization to be able pull reports specific to their reporting needs and to their organization therefore maintaining the security and confidentiality of both the participants as well as the work being done.

Below you will see a sample list of some of the data fields we track. For a complete list, please contact the Community Data Manager, Danielle Nesi.

  1. Baseline Information
  2. Contact hours with participants
  3. Violence Prevention Metrics such as incidents and mediations in the neighborhoods
  4. Demographic Information
  5. Social Emotional Learning Survey

The database is accessed electronically therefore the data can be entered and viewed from virtually anywhere. However, due to security concerns, we do ensure that the users of the database have signed a confidentiality agreement with the respective organization.

Technical Assistance, Maintenance of the database and any upgrades as needed is provided by the data team at the Adler University – Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice. The data team also conducts youth one on one interviews, focus group interviews and ensures data fidelity across all the seven restorative justice hubs.
