Taking lessons from COVID-19, a report from the Council on Criminal Justice provides an agenda to reshape the criminal justice system to prepare for future public health emergencies. Recommendations include improving crisis plans and preparedness, reducing density in the criminal justice system, identifying and sharing standards and practices for public health crises, developing better data and research on public health concerns for people involved in the justice system, and establishing and using clear channels of communication. The MacArthur-supported report calls for lasting reform to address the inequality and risks the pandemic exposed in the criminal justice system.
