Georgia continues to gain national recognition for criminal justice reform.
Gov. Nathan Deal joined Gov. Mary Fallin (R-OK) and Gov. Matt Bevin (R-KY) Tuesday in a panel discussion on criminal justice reform in Cleveland.
“Crime in many parts of the country, including Georgia, is generational,” said Deal, during the event that was hosted by the U.S. Justice Action Network. “If you break the cycle and show individuals that there is a different way, then you not only save money and lives in the short term, but you also create generational changes. If you can show these offenders that success after incarceration is possible, it will help keep them from becoming repeat offenders.”
