Safety and Justice Deserve Better Data

As part of BJA's Justice Counts initiative, researchers conducted a 50-state scan of publicly available, aggregate-level data. The new scan of what jails, prisons, and supervision agencies report publicly shows how much—and how little—state policymakers have to work with.
