    Reducing Jail Populations: Jail Data Initiative Demonstration

    Unable to attend? Watch the recording here.

    When determining local jail population drivers, counties may choose to look at neighboring counties’ data or others within their state and/or nationally as comparisons. The Jail Data Initiative (JDI) at New York University, in partnership with The Pew Charitable Trusts, is gathering data on jail populations around the country. Using online data rosters from roughly a third of the jails in the United States, the project analyzes daily populations, lengths of stay, charge and demographic profiles of people incarcerated, admissions, release statistics and more. The tool can also help communities identify racial and ethnic disparities in the local criminal legal system. Join this webinar for a demonstration of the JDI platform and learn how your county can use the platform to inform local justice decisions.

    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. Learn more and register.
