The fourth presentation to the Justice Reinvestment Ad Hoc Committee of the Ohio Criminal Sentencing Commission provides an overview of data and policy options related to reducing violent crime, moving people with substance addictions and mental health needs into treatment that works, reducing recidivism and costs to taxpayers, and improving data collection.
This presentation provides groundbreaking analysis of Ohio’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation arrest data. Topics covered include a review of sentences for property and drug felony offenses, a probation population recidivism analysis, exploration of effective violence-reduction strategies, and improvements to criminal justice data.

This overview outlines several criminal justice challenges in Ohio, including increases in certain types of violent crime in some parts of the state; substance use issues driven by the opioid crisis, which are causing increases in prison admissions; a large probation population; high corrections spending; and a large prison population.
