NACo Tackles Reducing Jail Populations

Join NACo for a webinar on reducing jail populations on February 2, 2023, 2:00 – 3:00 P.M.

Reducing the number of people in jail for technical violations can help decrease jail populations and improve outcomes and compliance with supervision conditions. Counties can reduce this kind of incarceration by reducing case processing times and implementing specialized caseloads.

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.
