Breaking the Cycle of Low-Level Crime: Public Safety Innovations During an Era of Change - Californians for Safety and Justice 2015 

03-24-2017 20:52

This brief highlights national and California models that emphasize government and community collaboration, address drivers of crime, and tailor interventions to the individual to stop crime cycles without overreliance on incarceration. All of these examples could be applied to individuals committing misdemeanors and certain, nonviolent felonies; the severity of the penalty is less relevant than the strategy employed to change behavior. The strategies in this brief are based on the stage of the intervention: deterring crime, diversion before arrest, diversion before conviction and alternatives to incarceration.
