Following a national competition in 2015, Lucas County, OH was among twenty jurisdictions selected for inclusion in the Safety and Justice Challenge Network, the centerpiece of the Foundation’s strategy to address overincarceration by reducing jail misuse and overuse. A previous award supported Lucas County’s participation in a structured data analysis and planning process, assessing local drivers of jail incarceration, setting reduction targets, and developing a plan to achieve them. Resulting plans were scored by an expert panel on the basis of ambition, comprehensiveness, and achievability, and eleven, including Lucas County’s, were selected for implementation funding on the basis of this review. This two-year award enables Lucas County to institute changes aimed at reducing local incarceration and disparities in jail usage in accordance with its implementation plan.
