Rising prison numbers on both sides of the Atlantic are cause for
concern. Justice Reinvestment is a major movement in criminal
justice reform in the US that is also attracting lots of interest
in the UK. Justice Reinvestment is an approach to addressing the
penal crisis that uses the best available evidence to re-direct
resources to more effective rehabilitation of offenders and better
`prehabilitation'. It takes a more holistic view of criminal
justice and is particularly concerned to address the community
dimensions of offending and re-offending. The authors highlight
competing models of Justice Reinvestment and argue for a more
radical version in which criminal justice reform is seen as part of
a wider social justice reform programme. This is the first
substantial publication on Justice Reinvestment and shows that
`Justice Reinvestment' has huge potential to re-shape the criminal
justice system. It will be essential reading for undergraduate and
post-graduate students with an interest in criminal justice reform.
Practitioners and policy-makers working in the criminal justice
system in the US and the UK will also value the fresh perspective
it brings to criminal justice reform and its breadth of coverage
including insights into the penal crisis, different models of
Justice Reinvestment, the use of criminal justice data and research
evidence in re-designing criminal justice services and new
approaches to commissioning.
