CHARLES KOCH FOUNDATION: Duke University Begins New Project to Examine Criminal Justice Reform in North Carolina

Charles Koch Foundation issued the following announcement on July 31.

The Duke University School of Law has announced Professor Brandon Garrett’s plans to continue his groundbreaking research into how to improve the U.S. criminal justice system through criminal justice data collection and analysis. Garrett’s aim is to improve the fairness of criminal adjudication, prevent wrongful convictions, reduce recidivism, divert low-risk offenders from jail or prison, and ease societal re-entry for the formerly incarcerated.

“Building on successful research efforts in Virginia, I’ll look across the entire criminal justice system in North Carolina and identify places where we could have better-informed and more evidence-based solutions. The program is designed to promote fairer, more evidenced-based outcomes without sacrificing crime control,” explained Garrett.

This project is supported by a grant from the Charles Koch Foundation. Read Duke University School of Law’s full announcement.
