The Collaborative 2021 - From Policy to Practice
Wednesday, June 30, 2021, 9:30 AM until 3:30 PM
Over the last several years, sweeping policy changes have been made to the Illinois criminal legal system with respect to bond reform, addressing violence by investment in disinvested communities (Restore, Reinvest and Renew [R3]), and police accountability. The implementation of these policy changes are now underway.
Often in the policymaking process, a great deal of time and effort is directed to the development and codification of policy, however, without rigorous attention to the policy's interpretation and implementation, the principles incorporated in the policy and its mandated outcomes can be lost or distorted.
This year, the Collaborative will focus on implementation of these three areas of change to assess the consistency between the original intent of recent policy changes and intent incorporated in the implementation. The Collaborative will examine the existing mechanisms for implementation, their operations, and how they impact people affected by policy changes. Subject matter experts, people impacted by the policy implementation, those responsible for implementing the policies, and advocates will engage in discussion about the implementation process, possible course corrections, potential obstacles, and effective monitoring and evaluation.
Since 2008, members of the Collaborative have worked to make our state and local criminal justice systems better serve the needs of those involved in the justice system and the communities in which they reside. Through research, public education and committee work, the members of the Collaborative have played a role in producing recommendations for stakeholders at the city, county and state levels to incorporate best practice policies and programs into their criminal justice and public safety initiatives.
