The Minnesota Governor’s Council on Justice Reinvestment met for the fourth time on February 11, 2022, to continue discussing proposed policy options focused on improving the effectiveness and equity of the state’s supervision system. This discussion began during the third meeting of the Governor’s Council on January 27, 2022.
The policy options are based on findings from a comprehensive quantitative analysis and supervision assessment conducted by the CSG Justice Center as part of the state’s Justice Reinvestment Initiative (JRI) and were developed by the Delivery System Standards and Funding Policy Working Group with assistance from the CSG Justice Center. JRI is funded by the U.S. DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance and The Pew Charitable Trusts.
The discussion on February 11 focused primarily on behavioral health in the state’s criminal justice system, including inconsistencies in access to services, shortage of service providers, and a lack of diversity in service providers.
