The Urban Institute has developed a series of six case studies for the Safety and Justice Challenge as part of the resources for communities working to reduce jail incarceration. The case studies focus on issues that pose particular challenges in Safety and Justice Challenge jurisdictions: addressing the needs of incarcerated women in rural communities, pretrial strategies for cases of intimate partner violence, diversion at the first point of contact with law enforcement, the role of personal agency in pretrial release, interpreting data with dashboards, and mental health intervention. The Urban Institute, a MacArthur grantee, outlines some early successes of local innovative solutions to jail reform that make communities safer and more equitable.
