Pew provides nonpartisan research, analysis, and assistance to state and federal officials to develop criminal and juvenile sentencing and corrections policies that will reduce reoffending and cut costs. The project does not advocate preset solutions, but rather works in partnership with policy leaders and stakeholders to develop data-driven policy options based on analysis of each state’s or jurisdiction’s particular challenges and lessons learned from other states.
