Dennis Daugaard on Crime

 


Achieved Level 4 certification for Juvenile Corrections

Our Department of Corrections is doing good work. It has achieved Level 4 certification by the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators. In 2011, we were the first state in the nation to do this, and last year we maintained this certification for a second year. I have required our juvenile facilities to be certified by these national, performance-based measures, and I'm proud that DOC has reached this high standard.

Justice reinvestment: focuses resources on proven tools

This past July, we formed the Criminal Justice Initiative Work Group. Top criminal justice leaders and stakeholders from both parties and all three branches of government, as well as law enforcement, treatment providers, prosecutors, and defense attorneys all had seats at the table. The charge to this work group could not have been simpler:
  1. Improve public safety.
  2. Hold offenders more accountable.
  3. Give us a better return on our criminal justice spending.
The workgroup did not have to reinvent the wheel. In more than 20 states, many of them very conservative states like TX, KY, and SC, have undertaken what they call "justice reinvestment." Justice reinvestment focuses resources on criminal justice tools that are proven to work. It focuses resources on evidence-based practices--not based on antidotes, not based on intuition, not based on what we think will work, but which has been proven to work elsewhere, and the evidence shows works.
