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

Podcast with Nebraska Senator Brad Ashford

| July 17, 2013

In this Platte Institute podcast, Senator Brad Ashford of Nebraska speaks about LB 561, a bill that institutes major reforms in the Nebraska juvenile justice system. Under the new legislation, juvenile offenders, their families, and the courts work together to develop plans that better meet the rehabilitation needs of the offender. Of particular note, the bill places more low-level offenders in community-based supervision, rather than in costly correctional facilities that produce meager results.


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.
