What is Maryland Month? Throughout September, JPI will be highlighting various aspects of the Maryland justice system. These include statistics relating to jails, prisons, parole, probation, pretrial services, community supervision, treatment, demographics on who is in the system, what taxpayers spend on the system, and ways to put the hard numbers on Maryland’s overuse of incarceration into context. To learn about Maryland’s demographics, see our factsheet and check out more share-able pics in our previous announcement.
