Bill Ritter on Crime

Democrat


New tough-on-crime sentencing policies

I spent my career in law enforcement protecting the citizens of Denver. We achieved a 95% conviction rate and sent more than 12,000 criminals to prison. I will be tough on crime, but also smart about how we prevent crime and punish those who do us harm.

Sentencing has had the greatest impact on criminal justice policy and resources in the past decade. Within 12 months a sentencing task force will propose concrete strategies that will allow Colorado to become a national leader in sentencing policies.
