NLADA - Data Systems Coordinator, Santa Barbara, CA
Because the quality of justice in America should not depend on how much money a person has, NLADA leads a broad network of advocates on the front lines to advance justice and expand opportunity for all by promoting excellence in the delivery of legal services for people who cannot afford counsel. This new VISTA project, Defending Communities in Service, will build sustainable community relationships and data systems and practices that allow participating public defender offices to more holistically support communities in need. VISTAs will build capacity within their host organizations focused on two separate tracks of service: you will serve as the driving force connecting their hosting Public Defender office to other justice system stakeholders, community organizations and service providers, strategic leaders, and to other relevant local National Service operations. These connections will help the public defenders to more effectively provide wraparound services to their clients and to more clearly understand and communicate the overall local services landscape upon which their clients rely. All NLADA VISTA project members will explore opportunities to utilize technology and automation to create communication and data-sharing channels between public defenders and human services organizations designed to last beyond the period of their projects, with minimal maintenance required.

Member Duties : The Santa Barbara Public Defender’s office embraces an evidence-based decision-making practice to track policy, program, & client advocacy. Data dramatically improve how public defenders and public safety groups work. The impact of inaccurate data in decision-making leads to time wasted on ineffective solutions. Decisions can have long-standing effects and be felt by all criminal justice stakeholders. The Data System VISTA will be collaborating with our IT team to integrate Holistic Defense and Post-Conviction data into our case management system. You will also assist in a Power BI Dashboard under construction. Through Power BI reports, you will work collaboratively with the project supervisor to provide our office, stakeholders, & our community with an up-to-date, granular view of office metrics, from post-conviction data, CDD data to diversion data. Visibility will improve transparency and help make decisions about resources, new initiatives, & improvements to existing processes.
