The Special Projects Department was created to address the growing technological needs of the agency and focuses on the following:

  • Maintain a central depository for data collection and dissemination for all departments. 
  • Provide accurate, timely, and useful data to support the data driven decisions of the management team. 
  • Support the JDAI reform efforts and other initiatives. 
  • Explore new technological solutions to enhance agency services.

In 2014, the National Center for Juvenile Justice published a white paper on the agencies collection and data usage abilities, entitled "Becoming a Data Driven Juvenile Justice Organization: The Calcasieu Parish Louisiana Experience".
