Dan Malloy on Crime
Prison population has dropped AND recidivism has declined
On the criminal justice front, Connecticut is leading the nation, and is now safer than it has been in fifty years.
Our prison population has dropped significantly, and high-risk, violent offenders are serving more of their sentence than ever before.
Recidivism has declined substantially. This progress has allowed us to save taxpayers $70 million in the current fiscal year.
All of this is making Connecticut a better, more desirable place to work and live.

Prevent crime; reduce gang activity; address recidivism
Focusing on Prevention: As Mayor, I created Stamford's Youth Development Initiative, which helped to prevent crime, reduce gang activity, and address recidivism. My Youth Development Initiative provided enriching opportunities after school
and other times when juvenile crime otherwise peaked. I believe this model could be used statewide to strengthen communities across the State and prevent costly youthful incarcerations.
