People in this story

SCCJ Professor Megan Denver and doctoral student Abigail Ballou published an article as part of a series of papers commissioned by Arnold Ventures examining the relationship between criminal justice reforms and public safety.

Researchers were asked to consider how a particular aspect of the justice system advances or undermines community safety.

Denver and Ballou explored how widespread post-conviction employment sanctions, restrictions, and disqualifications for individuals with criminal records and histories of justice system involvement can interact and accumulate in ways that are counterproductive to safety.
