Justice Reinvestment Initiative: Maximizing State Reforms Report Now Available

The Justice Reinvestment Initiative (JRI) is a data-driven process to improve public safety by helping jurisdictions make more effective and efficient use of criminal justice resources to address the complex factors that drive crime and recidivism.

As a part of the broader JRI portfolio, in FYs 2016 and 2017, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) competitively selected grantees under a solicitation designed to “strengthen states’ JRI reform efforts by bolstering their investment and commitment to data-driven and evidence-based decision-making.”

A new report from BJA, Justice Reinvestment Initiative: Maximizing State Reforms Report, highlights the goals, activities, outcomes, and lessons learned from the following states: Idaho, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, and South Dakota.

Read the report to learn more and visit the JRI section of the site for additional information about this program.
