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.
