Evaluation Services

SANDAG provides cost-effective independent evaluations and research services for San Diego County public health and safety programs. We work closely with local justice agencies to access police, prosecution, probation, and court records necessary to conduct locally funded studies and fulfill national research contract commitments. As a part of the evaluation services SANDAG offers, our team provides many years of experience conducting research in multiple languages. We regularly translate surveys into Spanish and our highly trained bilingual interviewers conduct interviews in English and Spanish.
