TriWest is a human service evaluation and management consulting company.

Juvenile Justice

Our juvenile justice expertise focuses on the evaluation of community-based alternatives to detention and the promotion of evidence-based approaches to juvenile crime and violence. Our evaluation expertise centers on helping states and local jurisdictions (including tribal governments) evaluate the effects of detention alternatives across diverse outcomes, including placement use, costs, and disproportionate minority representation.

TriWest team members have helped in the implementation of state and local level juvenile justice system reforms, including the development and implementation of screening and assessment approaches for placement and service-related decision support.

We are also involved in the evaluation and dissemination of evidence-based practices, including training and technical assistance related to Multisystemic Therapy (MST) and evaluation of an array of violence prevention approaches.
