SAC Current Projects

SAC Files

The SAC Files are a bi-monthly online publication produced by members from the SAC that spotlights and analyzes a certain crime or traffic safety problem based on statistical information derived from the state of Missouri.

Crime in Missouri

The SAC along with members from Information and Communications Division (ICTD) and Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) within the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) produce the annual Crime in Missouri Report. This report consists of the number of crimes and arrests that occur in the state of Missouri based on the Federal Bureau Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program.

Traffic Safety Compendium

The Traffic Safety Compendium is an annual report developed by members of the SAC with technical assistance provided by ICTD that provides members of the public with a variety of crash statistics.

Sex Offender Absconder Study

The SAC is collaborating with the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice to study Missouri’s non-compliant and absconder sex offenders to develop a predictive statistical model to assist law enforcement agencies to prevent future absconding or failure to register.

Justice Assistance Grant Program Support

The Missouri Department of Public Safety (DPS), Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Program, provides Bureau of Justice Assistance JAG Program financial assistance to projects statewide that support drug enforcement and other law enforcement efforts, domestic violence and child abuse investigations, criminal records and technology improvement, and data analysis. The SAC assists the Missouri DPS with its administration of grants by providing analytical support and program evaluation. It produces an annual report describing all approved research designs and reports of success for funded programs within the State as well as designs, implements, and maintains a business systems repository for Missouri illicit drug, violent crime, and criminal justice data for this project.
