Looks at three promising and less expensive interventions to roll back mass criminalization and reform the criminal justice system.

OverCriminalized profiles three promising and less expensive interventions that may actually change the course of people’s lives. It’s time to roll back mass criminalization and focus on what works. Since it seems that for almost every social problem that pops up, we turn to the criminal justice system. And if you are a person of color, the criminal justice crackdown affects you at a disproportionately higher rate.

We should do better. Not only is all of this inhumane, it’s expensive. When our tax dollars are picking up the tab, it makes sense to put funds where they will make the biggest impact. Housing programs help solve homelessness. Treatment helps stabilize mental illness and end drug dependency. Arrests and jail cells just waste time and money.
