The Brennan Center has compiled policy and advocacy responses detailing how different levels of the criminal justice system are responding to this public health crisis. This includes ways in which law enforcement, prosecutors, criminal courts, corrections agencies, and immigration agencies can better safeguard their communities and the broader public during this pandemic. We have also highlighted some agencies and government leaders who are reimagining their practices during this pandemic. We hope this compendium of recommendations will encourage more jurisdictions and agencies to take the steps necessary to dramatically reduce the incarcerated population and, hopefully, mitigate the worst consequences of this developing crisis.
