Criminal justice and ways to improve the system will be the topic of conversation as Gov. Kim Reynolds, Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg and other statewide stakeholders come together in a special public safety forum in June. “Leaders from across Iowa will meet to collectively look for ways to improve public safety outcomes for Iowans in the criminal justice system,” Gov. Reynolds says. “It’s imperative we hold people in the system accountable for their actions, but it’s also important that they receive the intervention necessary to change their behavior.” Attendees will include county and state leaders, criminal justice experts, policymakers, victims, victim advocates, people returning to the community from incarceration, community advocates and corrections and behavioral health practitioners. The Tuesday, June 19 forum is designed to address challenges in rural Iowa, restorative justice, improving responses to those in the criminal justice system with behavioral health needs and strengthening community supervision.
