Do you often ask if the investments your county makes in public safety are effective, as well as cost-effective? How do you know if the program or reform is having an impact? This training workshop will feature a criminal justice and cost-benefit analysis expert to discuss tools counties can use to help project future jail populations as well as conduct cost-benefit analyses for pretrial, probation, and jail programs and policies. In addition, county practitioners will discuss their progress and next steps for using these tools in their county justice systems.
