EPIC stands for Evidence-Based Practices Implementation for Capacity. The project was created by the Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCCJJ) in 2009 to implement evidence-based practices into the criminal justice system. The CCCJJ generates recommendations aimed at improving the criminal justice system in effective and long lasting ways, which is especially important in a time when resources are limited. EPIC was created based on several recommendations made by the CCCJJ subcommittees and was funded primary with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant dollars and Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) dollars.

In the 2013 legislative session House Bill 13-1129, supported by Representative Brittany Petterson and Senator Linda Newell, was signed to create a permanent resource center within the Division of Criminal Justice. The EPIC Resource Center will “assist agencies serving juvenile and adult populations to develop, implement, and sustain effective science-based frameworks to support the use of evidence based practices”.
