2016 • 2 years • Criminal Justice

Policy Research, Inc. (PRI) is a nationally-recognized source of research knowledge, expertise, and resources on issues related to the behavioral health needs of people involved in the justice system. Reducing the over-incarceration of people with serious mental illness is a priority for the systems change initiatives of nine of the eleven core sites receiving implementation funding as part of the Safety and Challenge Network. This award enables PRI to deliver intensive technical assistance directly to the nine jurisdictions as well as support the efforts of other core and partner Network sites to reduce inappropriate and unnecessary jail incarceration of people with serious mental illness. The goal is to divert people with serious mental illness from the criminal justice system to community-based programs at the earliest opportunity, including law enforcement contact, initial detention, and pretrial services.
