JRAC Community Corrections Code Review

The community correction code review provides valuable insight into the great work of community corrections programs. The code provisions and community corrections operations are complex and require multidisciplinary stakeholder engagement to make system changes. The Justice Reinvestment Advisory Council remains committed to collaboration with stakeholders and new local and regional Justice Reinvestment Advisory Councils to improve Indiana’s criminal justice system. Seeking out these improvements will result in more effective community corrections programs and improved outcomes for the program participants as well as the overall community.

From 2012 through 2016, there were 58 Indiana counties with opioid prescribing rates greater than 100 prescriptions per 100 residents.

Indiana is a part of the $26 billion national settlement with Johnson & Johnson, AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health and McKesson. Indiana’s share of the settlement is approximately $507 million and all cities, towns, and counties in the state are participating in the settlement.
