The Smart on Crime approach is both fiscally and socially responsible for Louisiana

Our state’s massive prison population is costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars each year, not to mention the mounting social costs that cannot be calculated. Reforms that lead to fewer nonviolent offenders being incarcerated will save the state millions of dollars, improve public safety, and, if a portion of that savings is invested in alternatives to incarceration, increase the likelihood that ex-offenders can successfully rejoin society.
