Governor Malloy's Budget Initiatives for Criminal Justice


CJPPD Monthly Report on Arrest Warrants


CJPPD Juvenile Justice Statistics

Message from Mike Lawlor


On February 16, 2011, Governor Dannel P. Malloy presented his FY 2012 -FY 2013 Biennium Governor's Budget with two (2) key proposals concerning criminal justice:

  • Offender Management Incentive Plan
    To use the Department of Correction’s existing Offender Accountability Plan to allow inmates to earn risk reduction credits for successful program completion and acceptable behavior to reduce their sentence. {PDF}
    Risk Reduction Credits Report submitted on April, 2009 to the General Assembly  by former Commissioner Theresa C. Lantz and a panel of experts from the Connecticut Department of Corrections and the Office of Policy and Management.
  • { } House Arrest for Driving Under the Influence and Minor Drug Offenses
    Where appropriate, offenders will be required to wear a Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking device and have a breath alcohol ignition interlock device installed.  

I would like to hear your thoughts about these proposals and how we can achieve improvements together. Your continued efforts and feedback are sincerely appreciated.

{ } Thanks, Mike
