Urban logoIn April, the Urban Institute began publishing JRI state summaries—factsheets that capture pre-reform criminal justice challenges in JRI states, post-reform successes, and data trends. Information on savings and reinvestment amounts, violent and property crime rates, recidivism rates, prison population growth, and more is included. Summaries for Georgia, North Carolina, and South Dakota are now available, and additional summaries will be published through September 2020. Support for this project was provided by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance.
