September is #MarylandMonth at JPI!

In honor of "Maryland Month," JPI will be highlighting various aspects of the Maryland justice system throughout the month of September.  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.   The series starts with JPI’s factsheet on Maryland's demographics, available here.

We encourage you to join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #MarylandMonth as we share this information.  Feel free to download the images below and post away!
