About Adult Redeploy Illinois
Adult Redeploy Illinois was established by the Crime Reduction Act (Public Act 96-0761) to provide financial incentives to local jurisdictions for programs that allow diversion of non-violent offenders from state prisons by providing community-based services. Grants are provided to counties, groups of counties, and judicial circuits to increase programming in their areas, in exchange for reducing the number of people they send to the Illinois Department of Corrections.

The Crime Reduction Act is based on the premise that crime can be reduced and the costs of the criminal justice system can be controlled by understanding and addressing the reasons why people commit crimes. It is also based on the premise that local jurisdictions (judicial circuits or counties) know best what resources are necessary to reduce crime. Rigorous evaluation processes with standardized performance measurements are required to confirm the effectiveness of services in reducing crime.

The Adult Redeploy Illinois program is an example of a national best practice called "performance incentive funding," which other states are adopting in different ways. Adult Redeploy Illinois is based on the successful juvenile model which has been operating since 2004 with positive results. In the first three years of the juvenile Redeploy Illinois program, four pilot sites reduced the number of youth sent to the Department of Juvenile Justice by 51 percent (well above the 25 percent goal), which represents potential youth incarceration cost avoidance to the state of nearly $19 million.

Results expected with Adult Redeploy Illinois include reduced prison overcrowding (based on other states' experiences, with no increase in crime); lowered cost to taxpayers ($24,899 a year for prison vs. less than $200 total for drug school for first offenders or $3,500 on average for drug treatment); an end to the expensive vicious cycle of crime and incarceration.

As of January 2018, Adult Redeploy Illinois (ARI) provides funding and technical assistance to 22 sites across 45 counties. ARI planning grants cover an additional 2 counties.
