The Justice Accountability Initiative (JAI) is a data-driven approach that can help state, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies analyze, understand, and address reducing recidivism and crime. The overall goal of JAI is to reduce crime by reducing the risk of recidivism, particularly violent recidivism. State and local agencies can accomplish this goal by creating and improving risk prediction tools , needs assessments and supervision plans, and building data-sharing and notification systems across criminal justice stakeholders. These strategies will also save in costs and improve operational efficiencies that can be reinvested in proven strategies to reduce crime and recidivism.
