Citizens for Justice Options, Community Forum

Prior to the community forum, Bob Sutherland spoke on the history and accomplishments of the Citizens for Justice Options, a voter committee of the League of Women Voter known for its work throughout Illinois. Since its founding, the CJO worked to reduce jail overcrowding, improve bonding practices, reduce the length of pre-trial detention, establish juvenile and drug courts to divert people from jail, and reduce recidivism. Its work resulted in a county jail database that makes possible for the first time local deterrence planning in McLean County.
