Across the country, cities and states are reexamining their criminal justice systems – and considering reforms like reducing pretrial incarceration, creating diversion programs and addressing racial disparities. In Tucson and Pima County, Arizona, the community is working to combat mental health and drug abuse issues and confronting the effects of increased immigration enforcement on the national and local stages.

What comes next for Tucson and surrounding areas in creating a more effective and fairer justice system?
