One Thing Republicans and Democrats Are Starting to Work Together On (and It’s Not War)

Could this be the year that lawmakers really begin to dismantle the system of mass incarceration that they have been building for decades? It seems conceivable, thanks to a surge in interest from elected officials at the state and federal level, as well as an “unlikely” coalition of left- and right-wing groups that announced its formation on Thursday. The Coalition for Public Safety, as the group is called, includes organizations like the Center for American Progress and the American Civil Liberties Union along with Tea Party-aligned FreedomWorks and Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform. It’s backed, in part, by Koch Industries.

Newly Released - Behavior Management of Justice-Involved Individuals: Contemporary Research and State-of-the-Art Policy and Practice

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and the Center for Effective Public Policy are pleased to announce the release of NIC’s publication, Behavior Management of Justice-Involved Individuals: Contemporary Research and State-of-the-Art Policy and Practice, a document authored by Madeline M. Carter, Principal, Center for Effective Public Policy. This document can be accessed at http://nicic.gov/Library/029553.

All justice-involved individuals who are under community supervision are expected to abide by a set of conditions. Unfortunately, a significant portion will violate one or more of their terms and conditions of supervision at some point, either by committing a new offense or by committing a technical violation–an infraction related to failing to comply with the technical rules set by the releasing authority. 

H.B. 4634

Amends the Internal Revenue Code to allow federal law enforcement officers, customs and border protection officers, and firefighters to make penalty-free withdrawals from their tax-exempt employee benefit and pension plans after they reach age 50.

Article: Releasing federal inmates early requires care (via union-bulletin.com)

Good intentions are only the starting place for good legislation.

Congress is currently considering the Recidivism Reduction and Public Safety Act of 2014, in which an estimated 34,000 federal prisoners could see a substantial reduction in their sentences. According to a story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the bill would double the time off a sentence an inmate can earn for behaving and participating in certain programs.

The legislation is careful to exclude the worst inmates — sex offenders, violent-crime offenders, repeat offenders, organized-crime members and major fraud convicts. That leaves nonviolent, first-time offenders who have passed an assessment showing they are less likely to reoffend.
