The Justice Administration Department (JAD) provides oversight and coordination of the collection and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data to inform County policy decisions in order to improve public safety, fairness, equity, efficiency, and accountability throughout the Harris County Justice System.


Our vision is a Harris County Justice System that is the standard other jurisdictions aspire to attain.


JAD’s mission is to coordinate, collaborate, and facilitate the transformation of data into straightforward information utilized for decision-making. JAD and its staff strive to establish trust, build consensus, form meaningful collaborative partnerships, and ensure transparency in all activities and interactions with our stakeholders.
