  SAC Spotlight: Idaho

Each SAC Spotlight focuses on one of the state Statistical Analysis Centers, with descriptions of the SAC's relationships with other state agencies, featured research projects and publications, and key personnel. By focusing on one SAC at a time, we hope to highlight the critical role they all play in analyzing justice information in their state and informing the development of sound public policy.

Planning, Grants and Research Department, Idaho State Police

Year Established: 1978

Number of Staff: 2 full-time, 1 part-time

About the SAC:
The Idaho Statistical Analysis Center (ISAC) resides within the Planning, Grants and Research (PG&R) Department of the Idaho State Police (ISP). PG&R serves as the State Administering Agency (SAA) for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG), Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT), Sexual Assault Services Program (SASP) and STOP Violence Against Women federal pass-through grant programs. Working with the SAA and the greater Idaho criminal justice research community, the ISAC provides statistical, analytical, planning, evaluation, and technical support to state, local, and national agencies. The ISAC also conducts impact and process evaluations of grant-funded programs for the Idaho Criminal Justice Grant Review Council, and the grant management team. Overall, the ISAC contributes to an understanding of evidence-based programming and cost effective governance in Idaho.

Within the past few years, the ISAC has received several awards for research publications, including the Phillip Hoke National Publication Award for the Idaho State Police Allocation Study in 2008, and the 2008 Idaho Crime Victimization Survey in 2011. In addition, the ISAC Director received a special achievement award from the Bureau of Justice Statistics in 2010.
