Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $976,980)

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) FY20 Justice Reinvestment Initiative: Reducing Violent Crime by Improving Justice System Performance (JRI) provides funding to develop and implement innovative and research-based responses that address a range of criminal justice system problems. It employs the Justice Reinvestment approach to criminal justice, which recognizes that every justice agency has a role to play in preventing crime, apprehending and prosecuting perpetrators, ensuring efficient and effective court and pretrial decision-making, facilitating appropriate sentencing and treatment, and protecting community security. Under FY20 JRI Category One, the grant recipient will use funds to identify and address the challenges that prevent efficient, timely, and effective court case processing, thus reducing unnecessary costs and delays that negatively impact the justice system and public safety.
