Recidivism Reduction and Justice Reinvestment
Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Successful corrections and sentencing policies result in recidivism reduction and cost savings. Learn how recidivism is defined and measured, and how some states have achieved significant drops in recidivism, including “justice reinvestment” approaches. 

This previously recorded webinar includes findings from the Public Safety Performance Project report State of Recidivism: The Revolving Door of America’s Prisons; a summary of the federal Justice Reinvestment Initiative; and state specific examples.
