Kansas SAC Continues Data Collection and Analysis Efforts

JRSA Forum. June 2013. Volume 31, Number 2.

The Kansas Sentencing Commission, also functioning as the Kansas SAC, continued collecting statewide felony sentencing data, processing statewide transactions of Senate Bill 123 drug treatment programs and monitoring the implementation of the programs, collecting Arrest-Related Deaths data for the Bureau of Justice Statistics, conducting prison population projections and custody classification projections for the Kansas Department of Corrections, producing research reports, and providing the legislature and state agencies with prison bed-space impact assessments under any policy change related to sentencing guidelines. The Kansas Sentencing Commission's FY2012 Annual Report was published in April, and the April issue of its quarterly e-newsletter was produced.
