The JENI offers a means to map out the disparate burden that criminalization and a detention-first justice model places on specific communities. As race underlies many of the criminal justice system’s inequities, it is a crucial component in the JENI. This spatial impact information, in turn, identifies where prevention, diversion, and reentry supportive services—and, vitally, the funding to make it all possible—should be directed to make the most significant, most equitable impact.
