State leaders—governors, legislators, and agency officials—share the goal of advancing safety and justice. To be successful, they need facts about the challenges in their states and practical, research-backed strategies. But the data we need to address these challenges are scattered across agencies and are often not made public soon enough to be useful, if at all. As a result, many leaders are clamoring for solutions. The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center has developed two key tools to help state leaders make public safety decisions this year: (1) the latest 50-state data on crime, arrests, and prison populations and (2) 10 strategies states can use to lower crime.
