Atlas: Voluntary Pretrial Supports for Individuals and Communities – Negotiated Acquisition

As a result of criminal justice reform effective January 1, 2020, there remains a need for supportive, strength-based offerings to ensure that people who are arrested and released by the courts without incarceration, supervision, or conditions are positioned to succeed, both while their case is pending and after it concludes. Atlas, a new initiative from the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, is a voluntary program designed for individuals awaiting trial without conditions and facing the highest risks and needs, including factors associated with future justice system involvement or victimization by providing a variety of evidence-based supports —including mentorship, education, employment, and therapeutic services. Atlas also improves community vitality and public safety by increasing the strength and capacity of grassroots organizations and lifting up community-driven public safety solutions.
