Current Radio Program:

There has been significant change in juvenile justice policies and trends throughout the last decade. To summarize and explain this transition, we interviewed Jake Horowitz,  the policy director for the Public Safety Performance Project at The Pew Charitable Trusts. Jake oversees Pew’s work to advance data-driven, fiscally sound policies and practices in the criminal and juvenile sentencing and corrections systems that protect public safety, hold offenders accountable, and control costs.

A growing body of research demonstrates that for many juvenile offenders, lengthy out-of-home placements in secure corrections or other residential facilities fail to produce better outcomes than alternative sanctions. In certain instances, they can be counterproductive. Seeking to reduce recidivism and achieve better returns on their juvenile justice spending, several states have recently enacted laws that limit which youth can be committed to these facilities and moderates the length of time they can spend there. These changes prioritize the use of costly facilities and intensive programming for serious offenders who present a higher risk of reoffending, while supporting effective community-based programs for others.

Before joining Pew, Jake worked at the National Institute of Justice (U.S. Department of Justice), in the U.S. House of Representatives, and at Eckerd Youth Alternatives. Jake graduated from Reed College and Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government

Some of the data and policy options (see underlined links) discussed includes:

The big picture trends in juvenile crime and commitment rates;

What does the research say about the impact of juvenile commitment on recidivism?

States taking action (Georgia, Kentucky, Hawaii);

The promising models (aligning fiscal incentives,);

Key stakeholders on these policies including judges and prosecuting attorneys;

What does the public want when it comes to juvenile justice reform?

Current Radio Program:

The program dealt with state information exchanges regarding offenders on parole and probation and other issues vital to public safety.

Leaders from Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia have been working to share information on offenders who move freely across jurisdictional boundaries.  To this end, these four jurisdictions have formed the Mid-Atlantic Regional Information Sharing (MARIS) Consortium to establish a secure inter-state justice information system that  builds upon, leverages and enhances existing state portals and uses proven national standards and tools.  These four jurisdictions, as well as Virginia and New York now exchange arrest information to identify those offenders on parole or probation who are arrested outside of their jurisdiction.

Those interviewed include: Tammy Woodhams, Senior Staff Associate, National Criminal Justice Association; Mannone Butler, Executive Director, DC Criminal Justice Coordinating Council and Ed Parker, Deputy Director of Operations, MD Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention.

The program was produced by Bethany Broida, Director of Communications, National Criminal Justice Association.

Current Radio Program:

The program examines the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority Adult Redeploy program. Those interviewed include Jack Cutrone, Executive Director of the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, Mary Ann Dyar, Program Administrator, Adult Redeploy and Cabell Cropper, Executive Director, National Criminal Justice Association.

Adult Redeploy seeks to promote local alternatives to incarceration for low level non-violent offenders. In order to meet this goal, the legislation empowered the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA) to create the Adult Redeploy program, which provides monetary incentives to help communities pay for evidence-based rehabilitation and supervision services. In exchange for monetary incentives and technical assistance, localities agree to reduce the number of offenders remanded to Department of Corrections control by 25 percent. While the initiative is only a little more than two years old it has already diverted more than 1,200 offenders and saved an estimated $20 million.

The website for the Adult Redeploy program is http://www.icjia.org/public/redeploy/ .

We thank Bethany Broida, Director of Communications for the National Criminal Justice Association for producing the program.

The program interviews Adam Gelb, Director of the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Public Safety Performance Project.

The Public Safety Performance Project works with states to advance data-driven, fiscally sound policies and practices in the criminal and juvenile justice systems that protect public safety, hold offenders accountable, and control corrections costs.

From the Pew website,  “America’s prison population skyrocketed over the past few decades, largely as a result of state laws and policies that placed more offenders behind bars and kept them there longer. But proven strategies are available that offer a better public safety return on taxpayer dollars.

PSPP and our partners (should link to http://www.pewstates.org/projects/public-safety-performance-project-328068/partners) have worked directly with more than a dozen states to help them develop research-based sentencing and corrections policies and practices that slow the growth of prison costs while reducing re-offense rates, and keeping communities safer.”
