Testimonials

Justice-impacted communities

Every time Recidiviz is thinking of launching a new product that affects people on supervision, I get an email asking to join a call to share my opinions about it. They walk me through the tools they’re building and how they think supervision officers might use them and I get to share my own stories and experiences to inform the design decisions. Taking a red pen to the tools that guide my POs actions has changed the way I look at supervision, being able to understand where POs are coming from, and help rewrite that story.

We are committed to setting a new trend in corrections, one that ensures residents and clients have every opportunity to meaningfully engage their rehabilitation. We do this by treating people with respect, by creating an atmosphere for growth within the facilities, and by choosing partners that align with our values. Recidiviz is such a partner. With this platform, we’ll be able to monitor and measure the success of our efforts to this new model of corrections.

Recidiviz tools give me a “to do list” and I don’t have to spend my time creating a list. This has made things more convenient.

We’re dedicated to facilitating the treatment, education, and job training programs that equip justice-involved Missourians with the skills they need. Approximately 96% of people who enter Missouri’s prisons will return to Missouri cities and towns.

This tool has come so far since we first started working together earlier this year. Soliciting our input and then putting it in action and making it something that we enjoy to use has been fantastic. We all appreciate it very much. Great job guys!

Being a part of Recidiviz’s UXR process has shown me that Recidiviz actually cares about giving a voice to the voiceless. Voice is power. In doing this, they are empowering our communities to be active participants in this collective healing.

More quickly and more definitively we’ll be able to answer the questions: are we helping residents and clients live more purpose-driven lives? Are we helping residents reenter communities with the knowledge, skills, health and stability necessary to stay out of the justice system?

Recidiviz tools are helping me to get ahead of the game so that I can spend more time working with people who need employment or have substance use needs.

It is just phenomenal, the things you've been able to develop in just a short amount of time - I don't know how y'all do it honestly.

Working with Recidiviz has opened my eyes to a world of possibilities for fixing this system that has taken so much from so many people. They ask for my opinions about real tools that are helping other people in my community who’ve been through something like I’ve been through.  It makes me feel like I endured all of it for something: to make things just a little better for others.

Recidiviz tools can really help us have an impact. If we know this far down in the weeds what’s causing poor outcomes, fixing it is the easy part. With this data, we can make strides at improving outcomes at the root of the issues

It's important to include the voices of those directly impacted by incarceration, unfortunately, it's not something that is commonly practiced, but one of the most important components to create a supervision experience that is more conducive towards an overall successful reentry and life beyond.

Recidiviz has enabled us to shift our focus to metrics that shine a light on positive outcomes, with real-time reports that highlight how we can maximize reentry success.

We’ve seen healthcare switch to being patient-centered. Imagine if supervision was client-centered. Think of how many people would become success stories, rather than getting churned back into the system. User Experience Research at Recidiviz has allowed us to take the next steps in co-authoring a client-centered supervision experience.

The innovative partnership opportunities presented by Recidiviz have caused our team at Americans for Prosperity to rethink the way we do advocacy. For example, their work on an Oklahoma sentencing reclassification bill helped accelerate its progress and our coalition feels that it is likely to be successful. Their policy modeling is considered by many to be the inflection point that made these reforms a reality.
