This chapter studies the bottom-up creation of locally usable near real time ‘active indicators’, as well as the top-down production of donor-demanded indicators. It explores the indicators of various performance patterns across police divisions in Jamaica, as well as the different drivers of pre-trial detention within a Nigerian prison. This chapter also suggests a recurring development of indicators from these local experiences in inter-country dialogues among important professionals, which would signal the eventual combination of these into global indicators.

Keywords:   bottom-up creation, top-down production, active indicators, donor-demanded indicators, performance patterns, pre-trial detention, Nigerian prison, Jamaican police divisions, inter-country dialogues
