JR aims to decrease imprisonment in those communities from which comparatively high numbers of individuals are cycling in and out of prison. It is generally understood as having four key elements, the first of which is its place-based focus……., the second element is its reliance on statistical and other data,…….. the third working to change local conditions that give rise to offending……… and  JR’s fourth element is its advocacy for a reinvestment of savings generated through decreased imprisonment to resource the ongoing work of JR projects.
