Report cover

This report by the Crime and Justice Institute (CJI) shows progress made by Oklahoma County to implement earlier 2016 Task Force recommendations to reduce the jail population and promote public safety. The county’s Criminal Justice Advisory Council requested CJI’s assistance to perform a follow-up study of the county’s progress.

Overall, the county has achieved its primary goal of reducing its population to address jail overcrowding; however, the report outlines aspects of the six recommendations that have yet to be implemented and provides twelve additional recommendations to reduce the pretrial population, remove system inefficiencies, and address racial disparities in the jail.
