Prevention & Reduction of Incarceration

Saving Resources, Finding Alternatives, Increasing Success

The following initiatives implement strategies to reduce incarcerations in Oklahoma and keep people out of prison and on the path to recovery and employment, an essential element to saving resources and increasing opportunities for success. Oklahoma has the second highest incarceration rate in the nation. Statics show that 95% of people in prison will be released, but only 1 in 3 will be arrest-free three years later, creating a cycle of incarceration that costs the state in both dollars and community safety. We focus on reducing incarcerations because this current level of incarceration has a significant impact on our entire community.
