Reducing length of stay during the pretrial period will decrease jail populations and allow people to return to the community more quickly to assist with their defense and continue working, attending school, caring for their families and other obligations. Counties can reduce length of stay by shortening case processing times and creating alternatives to pretrial detention.
In October 2022, NACo released its County Guide to Reducing Jail Populations and Costs, a web-based toolkit with key policies, practices and county examples for addressing local drivers of jail populations. Join NACo for a five-part virtual learning series that outlines key policies to address these drivers and features communities implementing impactful solutions that promote racial equity and reduce jail populations.
