Since 1972, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and its predecessor agency, the National Criminal Justice Information and Statistics Service, have provided support to state and territorial governments to establish and operate SACs to collect, analyze, and report statistics on crime and justice to federal, state, and local levels of government and to share state-level information nationally. The information produced by SACs and their involvement in criminal justice projects are critical to federal, state, and local criminal justice agencies and community organizations as they develop programs and policies related to crime, illegal drugs, victim services, and the administration of justice.  MBCC is currently partnering with the University of Montana Criminology Research Group (CRG) on three multi-year projects:

1. Montana Statewide Crime Victimization Survey - This project involves the development of a Montana Resident Survey
    and Bakken Ambient Population Survey.
2. Core Capacity Building -
Statewide Jail Survey and Detention Data Information System Improvements
3. Core Capacity Building - Cascade County Law Enforcement Juvenile Arrest Point of Contact Survey
