Client Solution: Measuring countywide policy implementation and enforcement

Services Provided: Using an in-depth qualitative approach, EVALCORP developed a comprehensive evaluation strategy to document the policy advancement process, corresponding levels of enforcement, and resulting short-term outcomes of an alcohol/other drug prevention initiative. We carried out extensive document reviews, media output tracking, youth surveys, focus groups, and key informant interviews with community stakeholders involved in the process. Following extensive analyses of all collected data, a summary report was developed and provided to project stakeholders.

Results/Value Added: EVALCORP was requested to present findings from the evaluation at multiple statewide and national conferences and before the County Board of Supervisors on behalf of the client organization. Lessons learned through the evaluation process continue to be shared with other agencies implementing similar initiatives. Our client received national recognition by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) for their outstanding work. Additionally, findings from our evaluation were utilized successfully to attract several years of new funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to continue their work.
