EVENT: Key Factors in Arrest Trends and Differences in California’s Counties

California has undergone a number of changes to public safety in recent years. What do we know about current arrest trends? And how have recent criminal justice reforms impacted arrests in California’s counties?

The Public Policy Institute of California will answer some of those questions at an event Thursday.

About the Event

Arrests can have wide-ranging consequences for individuals and the broader community, yet little is known about the factors underlying arrest trends and racial disparities. How have changes in crime rates and recent criminal justice reforms affected arrests in California? Do local demographic, economic, law enforcement, and jail conditions play a role? PPIC researcher Brandon Martin will outline findings from a new report, and a panel of experts will discuss the implications for state policy and local communities.

This research was supported with funding from Arnold Ventures.
