The conservative approach to criminal justice:
fighting crime, supporting victims, and protecting taxpayers.

It’s Time for a New Deal in Georgia Criminal Justice

| November 23, 2010

If you find it disturbing that 1 in every 31 adults in America are under correctional supervision (and you should), then you will probably find it downright startling to learn that 1 in every 13 adults in Georgia is in the corrections system.

A new ediotorial in the citizen notes that Georgia has more adults under correctional supervision than any other state.  Where there are problems, however, there are also opportunities, and this editorial argues that is up to Georgia’s new governor, Nathan Deal, to seize this opportunity.



RIGHT ON CRIME is a national campaign to promote successful, conservative solutions on American criminal justice policy—reforming the system to ensure public safety, shrink government, and save taxpayers money. By sharing research and policy ideas and mobilizing strong conservative voices, we work to raise awareness of the growing support for effective reforms within the conservative movement. We are transforming the debate on criminal justice in America.
