Chief Bratton to Testify Before National Criminal Justice Commission NA9160jr

What:
Testimony before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs.   
 
When:
Thursday, June 11, 2009 3 p.m., EDT

Where:
Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 226
Washington DC
 
Who:
Los Angeles Police Department Chief William J. Bratton in his capacity as the President of the Major Cities Chiefs Association

Why:
Senator Webb and other respected leaders have demonstrated a compelling need for reforms to address the incarceration rate, which is the world’s highest, skyrocketing costs, an inability to curtail street drug use, poor successes with prisoner re-entry into society and more.

There hasn’t been a comprehensive study of the entire criminal justice system since the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration and Justice, which was formed in 1965, and that the country’s criminal justice system is still operating on those findings and recommendations.

Chief Bratton will make a variety of recommendations to the newly formed Commission to improve the level of service to communities across the United States.
