A new National Institute of Justice website, CrimeSolutions.gov, uses rigorous research to determine what works in criminal justice, juvenile justice, and crime victim services. In addition to continuing to capture ongoing reviews of justice programs, CrimeSolutions.gov also presents reviews of justice practices. A practice is a general category of activities, strategies, or procedures that share similar characteristics with regard to the issues they address and how they address them.

The website includes research on the effectiveness of programs and practices as reviewed and rated by expert reviewers and ratings based on the evidence that indicates whether a program or practice achieves its goals.
