Criminal Justice Reform
I am advocating for the enhanced intake process on inmates.
One idea I would like to study, would be that all inmates are screened properly before being incarcerated.
If we could implement a better screening process, mentally ill and withdrawing addicts would be sent to the proper medical area of jail.
Instead of being recycled in and out of the system.
Better screening would in fact, save money, time and be more efficient.
