STAR Justice Series: Post-Pandemic Realities in STAR (Small, Tribal, and Rural) Jails

The Deason Criminal Justice Reform Center presents our STAR (Small, Tribal, and Rural) Justice Series. This series seeks to highlight an array of distinctive criminal justice issues affecting small, tribal, and rural areas across the United States.

Though bail reform advocates have long pressed for policies to help reduce lengthy pre-trial detentions, it was, arguably, responses to the COVID-19 pandemic that finally moved the needle on jail reform policies, either in response to the pandemic or by easing the reform process. 

As local jails became virus transmission hotspots, some sheriff and jail administrators sought to limit pre-trial detention and reduce jail populations. Others launched innovative reforms to address public health and safety concerns for pre-trial detainees and their communities.

Our expert panel will discuss jail administration policies and reforms implemented during the pandemic, especially in small towns and rural areas, and the implications of maintaining these reforms in a post-pandemic future.
