Commission on Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice

Nebraska Justice Reinvestment Working Group

The Nebraska Justice Reinvestment Working Group (Working Group) is a 19-member group established under the guidelines of LB907, Section 11 to collaborate with the Council of State Governments Justice Center (CSG Justice Center), a nonprofit association that helps local, state, and federal government agencies through membership dues and grants from the Pew Charitable Trusts and the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance. The CSG Justice Center was asked to provide intense technical assistance to help collect and analyze data and develop appropriate policy options to finance prison reform; to study and identify innovative solutions; to study evidence-based practices to develop a data-driven approach to reduce correctional spending; and to propose justice reinvestment strategies that can decrease crime and reduce recidivism and increase public safety. The Nebraska Legislature unanimously passed LB907 and the bill was signed into law by Governor Heineman on April 16, 2014.
