CAP Watch Action Alert: 4 Good Resolutions Being Heard on Thursday 4/4 and Friday 4/5

Pump UpPLEASE SUPPORT

SCR 26 – ENCOURAGING THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY TO CONTINUE AND EXPAND ITS STRUCTURED COMMUNITY PLACEMENT PROGRAMS.
Message: Most women are low risk and nonviolent. It costs $127/day to incarcerate and $50/day for community placement. Women can reunite with family while accessing gender responsive programming.

SCR 67 SD1 – ENCOURAGING THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY TO SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE ESTABLISHMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A STAND-ALONE REENTRY CENTER IN HONOLULU FOR RECOVERING LOW-RISK CRIMINAL OFFENDERS, WHICH MAY INCLUDE RESIDENTIAL AND DAY-REPORTING PROGRAM OPTIONS.
Message: Residential Reentry Centers are part of the federal Bureau of Prisons and are for those who need more structure; Hawai`i had a successful Day Reporting Center that was efficient and less expensive and sadly closed by Clayton Frank.

SCR 115 – REQUESTING THE HAWAII PAROLING AUTHORITY TO THOROUGHLY CONSIDER GRANTING PAROLE TO CLASS A, CLASS B, AND CLASS C FELONS BEFORE THE EXPIRATION OF THEIR MAXIMUM TERMS.
Message: The number of high risk max outs is increasing according to HPA statistics from 7.1.12 – 1.31.13. If we don’t deal with the underlying issues and provide treatment and supervision, individuals will have a difficult time successfully transitioning from prison to the community.

HCR 173 – ENCOURAGING THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY TO EXPAND COMMUNITY DRUG TREATMENT AND MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS FOR NONVIOLENT OFFENDERS AND MOVE LOW-RISK OFFENDERS INTO COMMUNITY PROGRAMS THAT DIRECTLY ADDRESS THEIR PATHWAYS TO INCARCERATION.
Message: Unless we start directly addressing an individual’s pathway to crime, which can ultimately lead to incarceration, we will never solve our correctional crisis. Let’s do what works; what is fair and just.
