This document outlines several strategies and examples that hold promise for reversing trends and seizing opportunities. Two complementary documents released simultaneously to this one highlight changing the use of jail as a primary response to substance abuse and mental illness by rightsizing police responses and jail populations. Several initial and ongoing steps will contribute to city success achieving goals of jail use reduction. These steps - including data sharing, structured collaboration and community engagement - are common across many arenas of city policy reform and in the case of jail use reduction can benefit from lessons learned in related fields.
