criminal justice stakeholder
Criminal justice stakeholders work in fields related to criminal justice operations and systemic reform. Their goal is to improve public safety, advocate for the needed and necessary changes, provide meaningful rehabilitation opportunities for our clients, and promote the development of services for victims and their families.
Stakeholders are found in the courts; judges, lawyers, public defenders, district attorney’s offices; in government and non-governmental agencies like pardon and parole board members; and private advocates in business and faith-based communities. Some of the most impactful players are state and national agencies and policy research organizations such as the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections, Louisiana Sheriff’s Association, National Institute for Corrections, the U.S. Department of Justice, The Sentencing Project, PEW Institute, National Council on Crime and Delinquency and others. These groups focus on evidence-based practices to address the challenges associated with our country’s reentry population.
Under the auspices of the Cabinet-level interagency Reentry Council, public agencies and private foundations are working together to enhance community safety and wellbeing by assisting those returning from prisons and jails to become productive citizens, and to save taxpayer dollars by lowering the direct and collateral costs of incarceration.
LPP is eager to answer questions and provide information for stakeholders seeking to learn more about the safety, value and effectiveness of our program.
Are you a criminal justice stakeholder who wants to learn more about how the existence and success of our program is directly related to your branch of work? Are you skeptical of criminal justice reforms and are seeking specific information to increase your comfort level? Are you looking to find creative ways to partner your agency or organization with the specialized reentry programming that LPP offers? We want to know your concerns and address them transparently and directly.
We are proud to work with the criminal justice stakeholders in Louisiana and are happy to meet with or speak to groups or individuals and develop tailored, relevant LPP informative materials that speak directly to those in your line of work.
