Delaware Criminal Justice Council begins hearings tonight

Delawareans have the opportunity to offer their views on the state’s criminal justice system at a series of public hearings.  The first one is tonight in Wilmington.

Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn chairs the Delaware Criminal Justice Council, which is an independent body which encourages collaboration and community involvement in addressing criminal justice issues.  Each hearing also examines the Justice Reinvestment Initiative, a data-driven effort to reduce the costs associated with corrections and related criminal justice activities.  Tonight’s meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. at Ezion Fair Baptist Church, 1400 B Street, Wilmington.  Other hearings will be held Monday November 14th at Kent County Levy Court and Wednesday November 16th at Delaware Technical Community College in Georgetown.
