About the Program

Passed by voters in 2014, Proposition 47 remains the subject of much debate. While supporters applaud the shift in resources from incarceration to treatment programs, opponents express concern about the law’s effects on public safety. Did the reductions in incarceration affect crime rates? Did the policy succeed in lowering recidivism? PPIC researcher Mia Bird will outline findings from a new report, and a panel of experts will discuss how Prop 47 has affected state and local corrections systems.

This event is supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle.
