PJIL’s projects meet the needs of policy makers, criminal justice officials, state and local agencies, advocates, and the media who are looking for guidance on corrections issues. Our current projects include the following initiatives.
The Humanization Project
We emphasize our common humanity with people in custody and identify ways conditions can be improved to promote health, safety, and dignity.
Louisiana Jail Standards Project
Pursuant to a directive from the Louisiana Legislature, PJIL will work with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and the Louisiana Sheriffs Association to help evaluate and develop more comprehensive jail standards and a more effective jail oversight structure for the state.
