Idaho Justice Reinvestment Initiative

Three key JRI elements

Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter signed the Justice Reinvestment Act into law on March 19, 2014, after it won unanimous approval in Idaho's House and Senate.

The Justice Reinvestment Initiative focuses prison beds on what the legislation deems the "most violent or greatest risk" offenders.

Other key elements are new tools to strengthening supervision, and requirements to track the effectiveness of programs through more data reporting.
