Out of Sight- The Growth of Jails in Rural America - Vera 2017 

08-03-2017 15:16

This report is one of a series that the Vera Institute of Justice (Vera) is releasing with the Safety and Justice Challenge — the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s initiative to reduce over-incarceration by changing the way America thinks about and uses jails. The initiative is supporting a network of competitively selected local jurisdictions committed to finding ways to safely reduce jail incarceration. As this report will enumerate, it is not simply small counties that have increasingly been the locus of rising local incarceration rates, but rural areas — nonmetropolitan areas defined by low population and distance from major population centers.
