About

We are building the technical foundation for a more accountable and self-improving criminal justice system.

Across the country, criminal justice agencies are trying to redefine how our criminal justice system works at its best. Our mission at Recidiviz is to accelerate their progress towards a smaller, fairer criminal justice system. We use modern data infrastructure and thoughtful product design to empower agencies to safely, thoughtfully, and permanently reduce incarceration and improve outcomes.

We are a non-profit founded in 2019. Based in San Francisco, Recidiviz began as a 20% project at Google and has since grown to become one of the best, brightest, and kindest teams that tech has to offer.

How we work

Humility

Technologists have a lot to offer but also a lot to learn. We are here to listen and accelerate the efforts of people who have spent their lives reforming the criminal justice system.

Non-partisan

Everyone agrees, it’s going to take all types to re-invent our justice system. There are countless new things that we can build together.

Open

We design tools and systems in a way that is open and extensible. All of our work is open source, making it easy for others in the ecosystem (including states) to extend and build on what we create.

Privacy and Security

Our platform is designed specifically for criminal justice data and all of the special precautions, compliance requirements, and thoughtfulness that comes with it.

Your data is private. Our technology is open–source.
