Louisiana Justice Reinvestment Package

Practitioner's Guide

The Louisiana Legislature recently passed the Louisiana Justice Reinvestment Package.  With this ambitious package, Louisiana is projected to reduce the prison population by 10% and save $262 million over the next decade.  Seventy percent of these savings - an estimated $184 million - will be reinvested into programs and policies proven to reduce recidivism and support victims of crime.  It is also projected to reduce the community supervision population by 12%, making caseload sizes more manageable for probation and parole officers.
