JPI "Maryland Month" Series

JPI named September 2014 "Maryland Month" and published a series of factsheets highlighting various aspects of the Maryland justice system. These include statistics relating to jails, prisons, parole, probation, pretrial services, community supervision, treatment, demographics on who is in the system, what taxpayers spend on the system, and ways to put the hard numbers on Maryland’s overuse of incarceration into context.  JPI also created a collection of share-able graphics to accompany its factsheets, putting some of the key findings into context.  You can find all of these resources listed below.
