We Can Reduce Unnecessary Incarceration and Crime

Law Enforcement Leaders to Reduce Crime and Incarceration unites more than 150 current and former police chiefs, federal and state chief prosecutors, and attorneys general from all 50 states to urge for a reduction in both crime and incarceration. With this group, law enforcement joins the emerging movement calling for an end to unnecessary, widespread incarceration.

We believe the country can reduce incarceration while keeping down crime. We believe unnecessary incarceration does not work to reduce crime, wastes taxpayer dollars, damages families and divides communities. We aim to build a smarter, stronger, and fairer criminal justice system by replacing ineffective policies with new solutions that reduce both crime and incarceration.

Law Enforcement Leaders called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring the revised Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act to the Senate floor for a vote. Click here to read statements by Chairman Ronal Serpas and former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey.
