New Resource - Compendium: Community Policing and Procedural Justice in Jails

Jails are communities in and of themselves, whose members are the individuals incarcerated and the correctional staff employed there; they are also part of the broader communities in which they are located, where the correctional staff live and to which the incarcerated population will eventually return. Community-oriented policing is as important in jails as it is in towns, cities, and counties; this compendium of community policing and procedural justice practices and programs, developed by the National Policing Institute and the National Sheriffs’ Association, features research and promising practices as well as eight successful programs operated by seven sheriffs’ offices that will be illuminating for other agencies nationwide.
