Smart Justice Policy Recommendations

The Spokane Smart Justice Campaign is a broad coalition of organizations and individuals committed to changing lives, lowering costs, and creating safer communities by relying on more efficient and effective responses to crime than incarceration alone. We know that incarceration and a lack of treatment programs make offenders worse.  It does not have to be that way.  The system needs to shift its focus from the "offense" to the "offender" so that the criminal justice interventions are the most likely to reduce crime, lower costs and create safer communities.
