Pew Charitable Trusts public safety performance project

0 1282

In an effort to continue the work of justice reform in Pennsylvania, the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania wrote to request the technical assistance of The Pew Charitable Trusts’ public safety performance project (Pew), as Pennsylvania undertakes a comprehensive assessment of our juvenile justice system. This interbranch initiative is charged to develop data-driven policy recommendations through stakeholder consensus with the goals of protecting public safety, ensuring accountability, containing costs, and improving outcomes for youth, families, and communities.

The initiative will be driven by a task force that will oversee the development of recommendations, along with technical assistance from The Pew Charitable Trusts. The task force is set to begin in January of 2020, with a report due to the Governor, the Chief Justice, and the General Assembly no later than November 30, 2020.
