Right on Crime
Conservatives are known for being tough oncrime, but we must also be tough on criminaljustice spending. That means demanding morecost-effective approaches that enhance publicsafety. A clear example is our reliance onprisons, which serve a critical role byincapacitating dangerous offenders and career criminals but are not the solution for every typeof offender. And in some instances, they havethe unintended consequence of hardeningnonviolent, low-risk offenders—making them agreater risk to the public than when theyentered.
