  Annual JRSA and BJS Awards

BJS Special Award for State Justice Statistics Achievement

The BJS Special Award for State Justice Statistics Achievement replaces the G. Paul Sylvestre Award. This special award honors a SAC director, SAC staff member, state or federal official, or other individual who has demonstrated outstanding achievement to help maintain and enhance the state's capacity to address criminal justice issues through collection, analysis, and dissemination of data.
