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

“Conservatives Are Still Trouncing Liberals on Prison Reform” – Greene

| February 5, 2015

After the passage of Proposition 47 in California, liberals are beginning to recognize the leadership of conservatives in the area. Giving credit where credit is due, an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times acknowledged Right on Crime’s successes in Texas, as well as the national movement by conservatives to apply fiscally conservative policies to criminal justice.

These policies have resulted in the first dent in an incarceration rate that has risen steadily for decades. Given that they have actually moved the needle, some appreciation shown to conservatives is not at all misplaced.

Read the op-ed here.


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.
