The Maricopa County Justice Systems Planning and Information Department supports the Arizona Arrestee Reporting and Information Network (AARIN), which is operated by researchers from Arizona State University’s Center for Violence Prevention and Community Safety. AARIN is modeled after the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ) ADAM program. Based upon the proven research model employed by NIJ, the AARIN program provides a cost-effective means for an early monitoring and warning system pertaining to drug usage of offenders in Arizona. The purpose of the project is to provide meaningful information to Arizonan researchers and policy-makers in assessing the impact of substance abuse upon criminal and juvenile justice systems.
ARRIN is designed for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and reporting drug use and drug-related activities of arrestees in Maricopa County, Arizona. AARIN interviewers engage recent arrestees in survey interviews that focus primarily on the arrestees’ drug use and related behavior, in addition to collecting urine specimens to determine the type of drugs the arrestees currently use.
