In a post-Realignment California, criminal and juvenile justice professionals and advocates require accessible data resources in order to develop state and local policies. Everyone agrees reliable data is necessary to examine the impact of Realignment on California.
Realignment creates an opportunity for local jursdictions to implement community-based interventions for individuals who have been charged with non-serious, non-sexual, and non-violent offenses.
According to a new CJCJ report, California’s counties have spent significant resources and jail capacity, often at their own expense, to detain suspected undocumented immigrants who do not have a reported criminal history.

CJCJ uses its expertise to educate the public on national and global criminal justice issues.
