[Extract] What is Justice Reinvestment? Justice Reinvestment is a strategy for reducing the number of people in the prison system by investing funds drawn from the corrections budget into communities that produce large numbers of prisoners. The term was coined in 2003 in the United States of America (Tucker & Cadora 2003) with the idea of redirecting a portion of the $54 billion the United States of America spent on prisons into addressing the underlying causes of crime in high-incarceration neighbourhoods.
