Public Safety and Criminal Reform
I will always support and defend our local police departments. They discharge their duties with the utmost integrity and honor. Like so many, I have family members serving in law enforcement, and know the sacrifices they endure every day.
This does not mean our criminal justice system is perfect. I am in favor of offering more extensive rehabilitation services and offering job training opportunities for non-violent offenders. This system should be based on reforming the individual to become a productive member of society, not a recurring offender.
I’ve seen first hand the impact of reforms in states like Indiana through the “Second Chance Act” to provide those same reformed non-violent offenders with opportunities beyond their confinement. I believe we have an opportunity to replicate this in Wisconsin.
