Model Local Practices

Several county systems provide individualized, culturally responsive services to their high-needs, high-risk adult and juvenile populations that have demonstrated successful long-term outcomes. Deliberate, cost-effective, systemic strategies are essential for local jurisdictions seeking to maximize the use of public funds and avoid overreliance on incarceration. Data-driven strategies can be used re-think criminal justice interventions and services.

CJCJ brings model local practices to the attention of policy makers and practitioners across the state, advocating for resources to reinforce and expand such practices. Additionally, CJCJ works with local practitioners to identify, develop, and implement replicable systems-level approaches that efficiently use local resources to produce positive outcomes for adult offenders.
