Law enforcement joins with victims to support smart criminal justice reform initiatives
from National Sheriffs' Association
Over the past decade, more than 30 states have embraced thoughtful, data-driven criminal justice policy reforms to improve their public safety outcomes while holding offenders accountable and curbing corrections spending. The "Sentencing, Corrections and Public Safety Guiding Principles for Crime Victims and Survivors" were developed by crime victims, survivors and victim assistance professionals to inform and support states' criminal justice reform initiatives. These principles recognize that smart criminal justice policy halts the cycle of recidivism, redirects limited correctional resources to programs and policies proven to work, and ultimately leads to fewer victims.
