Evidence-Based Practices Quality Assurance Committee

The Criminal Justice Evidence-Based Practices Quality Assurance Committee (QA Committee) is currently comprised of representatives from the Santa Barbara County Probation Department, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office, Department of Behavioral Wellness, Community Based Organizations (CBOs), the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), and a community representative; however, participation is open to all agencies/individuals. The ongoing goals of the group are to assess and ensure fidelity with the use of evidence-based models, support skill building by creating opportunities for joint training and development, identify gaps in service, ensure efficient service delivery, and promote improved outcomes through collaborative quality assurance efforts. The QA Committee meets regularly to further their endeavors and to work with the Results First Initiative in the analysis of the cost and effectiveness of programs made available to offenders in Santa Barbara County.
