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 Three, the grant recipient will use funds to identify innovative approaches to address persistent or emerging crime and public safety problems, or the barriers to address them, across the entire criminal justice spectrum.
