Since 2017, Allegheny County has participated in the Safety and Justice Challenge as an Innovation site, one of 20 competitively selected jurisdictions receiving small project grants and technical assistance from the Urban Institute in support of targeted efforts to safely reduce jail misuse and overuse. On the basis of project performance and with the help of the Urban Institute, a select group of  these sites has been identified as ready for deeper implementation investment. This award enables Allegheny County to undertake more ambitious and comprehensive reforms aimed at achieving substantial reductions in local incarceration and racial and ethnic disparities in jail usage, as an implementation site in the Safety and Justice Challenge Network.
