Idea Vote: Redesigning Criminal Justice
We invite you to vote for one idea for redesigning the criminal justice system.
We are offering a pop-up class on Redesigning Criminal Justice at Stanford’s d.school this Spring. As our teaching team plans out our design challenge(s) for the class, we are opening up the discussion to the public.
Which of these problems do you think is most deserving of a redesign? What would you most like to work on? What would you like to see Stanford students working on?
Each visitor gets one vote. Feel free to leave comments at the form at the bottom of the page — for additional design challenges, or for concepts on the ideas proposed here. We want to hear from you!
How might we help criminal defendants better understand & respond to plea offers?
How might we help probation officers create pre-sentence reports to provide abetter view of a juvenile facing charges in the juvenile justice system?
How might we improve the working experience of both DAs and public defenders?
How might we address the concerns of an individual who has been stopped and frisk?
How might we improve the document management system used by police, prosecutors and defense attorneys?
How might we enable victims of abuse and domestic violence to better reach out for emergency support?
How might we help people to better navigate their encounters with the police as it’s happening?
How might we improve the relations between the police and communities?
