AbstractThis slideshow, presented to the Alaska Criminal Justice Commission and Alaska Criminal Justice Working Group, presents Results First benefit to cost model estimates on 19 Alaska adult criminal justice programs. The Results First analysis of evidence-based programs, developed in partnership with the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative, provides policymakers with a tool to better understand the relationship between the state’s monetary investment in programs and the return on that investment in terms of the benefits of reduced recidivism.
