Feb 11, 2021

Dcist reports “In the next decade, D.C. could reduce incarceration by half, bring residents who have been in federal prisons in other states back home, and replace the D.C. Jail, which has been in deep disrepair for years.

The steps for doing this are laid out in a report from the District Task Force on Jails and Justice, an independent advisory body of lawmakers, advocates, and law enforcement stakeholders that formed in 2019 and was charged with coming up with a plan to replace the city’s aging jails and re-envision its criminal system.”
