Harris County:
Proud member of the MacArthur Foundation Safety + Justice Challenge

Harris County is a member of the MacArthur Foundation Safety + Justice Challenge – an acclaimed nationwide effort to rethink the criminal justice system and the use of jails. Like other local leaders from around the nation involved in the Challenge, we are looking at better, fairer and more effective alternatives to excessive jail incarceration. That means studying every facet of the criminal justice system, how it works, if it works and why it works the way it does. Read more about the MacArthur Foundation Safety + Justice Challenge here.
