Award Date: March 15, 2018
Awarded: $330,000

Oklahoma Policy Institute (OK Policy) is a non-partisan independent policy think-tank. Expanding their research and advocacy on the strong local reforms underway in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, OK Policy will produce analyses of the outcomes of changes to pretrial release programs, and failure to pay warrants and policies in need of further consideration, as well as engaging in advocacy to replicate these changes in other jurisdictions. Additionally, OK Policy is pioneering a method to collect and analyze publicly available court documents in order to better understand key aspects of local justice systems.
