Frequently Asked Questions

What does technical assistance look like?

Technical assistance is tailored to each site, but includes:

  • A comprehensive analysis of criminal justice data and expert diagnosis of the current criminal justice and corrections system to identify factors that are driving costs associated with criminal justice;
  • Coordination and facilitation of bipartisan forums and working groups that bring policymakers together with other officials and stakeholders to share information and ideas and consider policy options;
  • Development of specifically tailored and data-driven policies, practices, and programs designed to increase public safety, hold offenders accountable, and reduce spending on corrections;
  • Identification of evidence-based reinvestment strategies that hold the greatest promise for reducing recidivism and increasing public safety; and
  • Assistance in assessing the impact and cost-benefits of justice reinvestment.
