Solutions
Restore Accountability.

  • Revise the state’s excessively lenient early release policies, particularly where they pertain to violent offenders, to ensure dangerous felons serve the majority of their sentence.
  • Allow for the arrest, possible jail time and drug treatment court for those who shoplift less than $950.
  • Preserve cash bail, which is a proven safeguard for the “accused” to appear at their mandated court appearances.
