    Criminal Justice

    ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA — The Justice Management Institute (the Institute) works to advance knowledge and practice in the administration of justice through research, education and training, and technical assistance aimed at better system alignment and coordination. A previous award supported the Institute's participation in the planning, design, and launch of the Safety and Justice Challenge Network, which will be composed of 20 competitively selected local jurisdictions committed to finding ways to reduce unnecessary jail incarceration safely and sustainably. The Safety and Justice Challenge Network is at the core of the Foundation's initiative to reduce over-incarceration by changing the way America thinks about and uses jails. This award enables the Institute to provide project coordination and technical assistance in 2015 to a cohort of five of these jurisdictions, as they work to assess drivers of local incarceration and develop collaborative plans to address them. In 2016, the award provides support for the Institute to continue to work with selected sites to implement their plans.
