About the Webinar

New Jersey legislation requires the courts to run a risk assessment against a defendant to determine the risk for non-appearance or likelihood to re-offend. To meet this requirement, the New Jersey Courts team developed the Public Safety Assessment (PSA) application that sweeps state and federal criminal justice system databases to build an individual’s risk profile. Effective Data Quality processes, Master Data Management capabilities, and extract, transform, load (ETL) database functions were essential to create and deliver these assessments – they are available to the courts in seconds.

During this webinar, our experts from the New Jersey Courts will:

        •   Describe their Data Governance journey and the long-term vision

        •   Share challenges faced and lessons learned

        •   Illustrate the compelling cost-saving benefits achieved
