In 2002, the National Association of State Judicial Educators and The Century Council convened a national panel, the Judicial Education Advisory Board, to examine the judiciary’s critical role in reducing hardcore drunk driving (HCDD). The Board is composed of judges and judicial educators who are recognized experts on drunk driving issues. With the Judicial Advisory Board, The Century Council has created this first-of-its-kind compendium of promising programs in order to enable criminal justice practitioners to learn from each other.
The hope is the Promising Criminal Justice Programs for DWI Offenders resource will empower communities to improve and expand their anti-drunk driving strategies and provide a roadmap for launching new efforts. We think this will be helpful to communities struggling to improve or establish programs.
The Century Council defines a “promising program” as one that leads to behavior modification among DWI offenders, improves outcomes in the criminal justice system and is simple, easy to explain, understand, implement and replicate. It should also be cost effective and have measurable, objective outcomes and results. We continue to reach out to public safety officials and organizations across the country to solicit submissions.
