We Can Reduce Unnecessary Incarceration and Crime
Law Enforcement Leaders to Reduce Crime & Incarceration unites nearly 200 current and former police chiefs, federal and state chief prosecutors, attorneys general, and correctional officials from all 50 states. Our national coalition urges changes to laws and practices that more effectively fight crime while reducing unnecessary imprisonment.
We believe that the goals of reducing crime and reducing incarceration are not only compatible, but are also mutually necessary. Through our decades of experience, we believe unnecessary incarceration is counter-productive, as it can create more crime, waste taxpayer dollars, and further divide law enforcement from the communities we seek to protect. We aim to build a smarter and stronger criminal justice system by replacing ineffective policies with new, modern practices that reduce both crime and incarceration.
We currently have nearly 200 members hailing from all 50 states, from all divisions of law enforcement, and from across the political spectrum.
