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

| June 15, 2015

On Friday last week, Right on Crime senior policy analyst Derek Cohen joined guest host Rebecca Maxwell on “The Steve Deace Show” to discuss conservative criminal justice reform. Topics included highlighting the differences found between the Right on Crime initiative and other justice reform groups, demonstrating the role that restitution plays to make victims whole, and some of the shortfalls of mandatory minimum sentencing. Cohen also pointed out the potential for criminal justice reform to become a major policy issue in the 2016 election.

Listen to the interview below:



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.
