Justice Reinvestment in Georgia: Strengthening Probation and Increasing Public Safety

In Georgia, a justice reinvestment approach led to changes that will strengthen probation. High probation officer caseloads will be reduced in part by providing people who are sentenced to probation for first-time offenses with a behavioral incentive date (BID). If the person meets certain conditions, his or her probation will be terminated by the BID. With smaller caseloads, officers will be able to better focus on people during the first two to three years of their probation terms when they are most likely to reoffend and will be able to use more effective responses to supervision violations, thereby increasing public safety. This CSG Justice Center publication presents a full summary of the justice reinvestment process and legislation.
