Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $1,000,000)

The Crime and Justice Institute (CJI) purpose is to help competitively selected jurisdictions implement evidence-based and innovative community supervision policies, practices and programs; improve outcomes for youth under community supervision and reduce admissions to confinement as a result of community supervision/probation violations; reduce recidivism and promote public safety. Transforming community supervision to adopt and implement more effective and sustainable practices is challenging. Jurisdictions can benefit from targeted, customized training and technical assistance to reduce recidivism for youth on community supervision and youth returning to their communities following confinement, while promoting the fair administration of justice and advancing public safety.
