Criminal Justice: VPP Platform

Progressives are committed to public safety. We will work to:

  • Invest in prevention and anti violence programs.
  • Discontinue the failed “war on drugs.”
  • Fund drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs.
  • Limit incarceration to offenders who pose a threat to public safety.
  • Create effective penalties against driving under the influence to ensure public safety.
  • Work to provide in-state placements and treatment (rather than out-of-state).
  • Advocate for vocational and workplace training for offenders and youth at risk.
  • Provide education and literacy support in all corrections settings.
