The center promotes effective data-driven practices–particularly in areas in which the criminal justice system intersects with other disciplines, such as public health–to affect a particular public safety problem. The center has focused on prisoner re-entry and “justice reinvestment”–”increasing public safety, reducing spending on corrections, and improving conditions in the neighborhoods to which most people released from prison return,” among many other issues.
