About the research

The final report presents the results of a comprehensive examination of the history and effectiveness of BAIID devices and their implementation across the US. Along with a focused literature review, we consider the history, implementation, and outcomes of BAIID policies and programs. Using the information gathered, we identify the most effective administrative and judicial program elements for an evidenced-based BAIID program in Iowa. Our recommendations are based on peer-reviewed scientific literature, web resources, and interviews with subject matter experts.
