Safety and Sentencing

Our Safety and Sentencing program works to develop approaches to public safety that help foster safe communities, are fiscally responsible, and curb the unsustainable growth of Oregon’s prison system. The program promotes safe and sensible sentencing reform (such as use of earned time), diversion programs like drug court, and has a special emphasis on youth justice.
