Locals are addressing the role of jails in the broader criminal justice system. We will travel around the country and hear from people directly impacted by jails and chronicle the progress ground-up efforts have made in diversion, bail reform, recidivism, adoption of technology and other crucial aspects of the move toward decarceration at local levels.
