Description

Reducing recidivism, even by just 10 percent, can save millions. Rigorous research has demonstrated that some programs and strategies can improve public safety and reduce recidivism. In many cases the benefits to taxpayers and society outweigh the costs to implement. Strategic investments in these programs, along with careful attention to implementation and monitoring performance, could help the state achieve reductions in recidivism and improve public safety. The use of cost-benefit analysis can assist policymakers on what investments will yield the best and most cost-effective results and support the state’s performance-based budgeting process.
