    A 100% success rate for one year after graduation for women.
     
    An 86% success rate for one year after graduation for men.
     
    Those numbers are amazing enough if we were talking about education, but they’re truly one-of-a-kind for substance abuse programs.
     
    I spoke to Sheriff Craig Roberts and Chief Deputy Jenna Morrison of the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office about the amazing success data of their Clackamas County Substance Abuse Program.
     
    Over the past five years alone, the Clackamas County substance abuse initiative has helped over 500 of the highest risk individuals and reduced crime while improving lives.
     
    Take a look at some of their great work here.

    18: Predictive Policing Will Fail Without Transparent Data and Context w/ Professor Jerry Ratcliffe

    18: Predictive Policing Will Fail Without Transparent Data and Context w/ Professor Jerry Ratcliffe

    There were 114 officer suicides this year.
    Which is a horrible, tragic number, but not--and this is important--statistically worse than average for the general population.
    See, without context, data doesn’t mean anything.
    On a recent episode of Pinpoint, I got to interview Jerry Ratcliffe, a professor with the Department of Criminal Justice at Temple University, about a slew of things in predictive policing from a data-driven, academic perspective.
    “You only really understand what a number means when you compare that number to something else,” Professor Ratcliffe said.

    17: #Iam911: Inside a Movement that is Reshaping the Way People See Dispatchers with Ricardo Martinez

    17: #Iam911: Inside a Movement that is Reshaping the Way People See Dispatchers with Ricardo Martinez

    Every 911 dispatcher has their own story.

    How they got involved in dispatch. What drew them in the first place. Why they stayed. Why they left. 
    There are as many different stories as there are dispatchers, because dispatch is such a deeply personal profession. 
    On this episode of the Pinpoint Podcast, we sit down with Ricardo Martinez, former 911 Dispatcher, Director of Communications at INDigital Telecom, and host of the Within the Trenches Podcast, for a chat around what got him started, some of the things that have impacted him along the way, why he started his podcast, and the driving force behind the #Iam911 movement.
