Johnson County, Iowa is implementing elements of the Data Driven Justice Initiative to expand the work they have done with their post-booking jail diversion program. They will use inter-departmental data to predict and identify populations that would benefit from a pre-jail diversion program, better understand infrastructure costs, where to increase efficiencies, and use the data to show improved outcomes. They will also use the data to identify high utilizers of law enforcement, emergency medical services, emergency room, and jail services. This population will be provided with proactive mental health and substance abuse treatment to reduce recidivism and minimize their interaction with these services.
