Justice Policy Center

  • The National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice was built on three conceptual pillars, but it needed a fourth: police accountability.

  • States and local governments are finding ways to  support community-level innovation to tackle crime and safety challenges.

  • This five-year project will leverage research and evidence to promote a transformation of the prison system and shine a much-needed light on the profound impact conditions of confinement have on rehabilitation behind bars.

  • For the first time, we can now easily model the specific impacts that policy changes will have on racial disparities, costs, and the size of the prison population in nearly all fifty states, and forecast how a state’s prison population will look if current policies go unchanged.
