Governor’s Weekly Message: Eliminating Barriers While Transforming the Criminal Justice System
Dover, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell discusses efforts to transform the criminal justice system through the implementation of programs designed to support pre-trial detainees.
“We must reserve prison space for truly dangerous individuals, not low-risk defendants who are unable to pay,” said Governor Markell. “By transforming our criminal justice system to use our jail cells for individuals who actually need and deserve them, we’ll better serve our communities, use our state resources more effectively, and honor the fact that most people deserve a second chance. And that will keep Delaware moving forward.”
