Title: Governor Christie - Helping Non-violent Offenders Re-enter Society
Author: Christie, Chris; Office of the Governor
Description: Uploaded on Nov 28, 2011 Press Conference on Prisoner Reentry - November 28, 2011. (Transcript Below) Governor Christie: What's the vision for this ultimately in the end, the one that Mary Pat and I have together? It's that we'd like to see this program become a statewide program. We'd like to see Drug Court available in every county in New Jersey, and we would like to see more and more people who are nonviolent drug offenders come out of prison, but before they do go through an intensive program of drug rehabilitation and vocational training. It is less expensive than warehousing people. It is more effective than warehousing people. And those who started the War on Drugs a couple of decades ago had the best intentions and they've had some success. But in the end I think we can look back and evaluate it and say we haven't had the kind of success that we hoped for or that we need to, and that just putting people in prison for nonviolent drug offenses makes no sense for our society in the long haul.
