Job training programs reduce recidivism and help pave the transition for individuals returning to their communities. States use Byrne JAG to support programs and partnerships that provide vocational training and job skills. One such program, the J. F. Ingram State Technical College’s Education to Employment initiative in Alabama helps incarcerated students overcome barriers to employment. ISTC job placement specialists match graduates to available jobs, building a network of employment opportunities for those workers who have traditionally been viewed as hard to place. The program is essential to help reducing high recidivism rates in Alabama and removing barriers to successful reentry.

Stable housing is the cornerstone of successful reentry. Most states use Byrne JAG to support reentry initiatives that reduce recidivism, including a program from the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services that provides housing vouchers to parolees leaving institutions so they can obtain appropriate and stable housing to assist them in transitioning from prison back to the community.

Term of the Month

NIJ’s new feature, Term of the Month, promotes research-based definitions of criminal justice terminology. This month, we’re defining Evidence-Based Policing — the intersection of policing and science — and sharing several recent NIJ resources to advance the field of policing.

Evidence-Based Policing (EVP) definition: Using data, analysis, and research to complement experience and professional judgment, in order to provide the best possible police service to the public. EVP refers to scientific evidence, not evidence in the legal or investigative sense.

Learn more about evidence-based policing for NIJ at: https://nij.ojp.gov/term-month?utm_source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=feb21totm

Welcome to NIJ’s Term of the Month. Each month we are featuring a term from our scientific research portfolios informing significant American justice system issues and solutions. Along with a definition, we are providing links to related resources — publications, videos, etc. — that illuminate...
