On December 1st, a Public Forum was held for community members to discuss ways to improve the criminal justice system.
The forum was held at First State Community Action Agency in Georgetown where more than 90 community members met to share their ideas on how to make the criminal justice system more equitable, how to improve public safety, and comments on research presented in the October and November informational hearings.
Topics discussed were Bail & Pre-Trial Detention, Charging & Sentencing, Policing Strategies, Alternatives to Incarceration, as well as other issues, Racial Profiling and Disparities, School-to-Prison Pipeline, Three-Strikes Law, Criminal Prevention Strategies, and Support for Reentry Programs.
The Public Forum was hosted by the Access to Justice Commission’s Committee on Fairness in the Criminal Justice Systems and was the first of four public forums to be held in the month of December.
