Planning for Justice

Featured Audio

Cuyahoga County is poised to build a new justice center--a construction project that is much more than just a new building. It's a unique opportunity to either create the conditions for criminal justice reform to truly take hold, or to cement the status quo.

Karen Chinn was part of the group of national consultants who assisted Cuyahoga County leadership in the first phase of the work. It was an assessment of Cuyahoga County's entire criminal justice system, and the factors that have an impact on things like jail population and the rate of court filings.

How can these findings help inform the construction of a new justice center? One that helps the community realize its aspirations to become a more just and more equitable community?
