Oklahoma’s criminal justice system is in crisis.
The state has the highest incarceration rate in the country and the world and its prisons are operating at 113 percent capacity.
State leaders are voting on reforms that are part of the Big Six criminal justice package.
Together these Big Six reforms will:
- Safely reduce Oklahoma’s prison population by 17 percent by 2028
- Keep families together
- Ensure that Oklahoma’s tax dollars are spent wisely
In order to put a stop to prison growth, all six reforms must be priorities this legislative session.
It’s time for state leaders to vote these Big Six criminal justice reform bills into law immediately.
