MADISON – Gov. Tony Evers yesterday signed Executive Order #41 recreating the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council.

“The Criminal Justice Coordinating Council plays a vital role in connecting the dots between crucial decision makers and entities within the criminal justice system,” said Gov. Evers. “This Council will continue to help Wisconsin move toward sound, evidence-based practices that focus our resources on programs that work, while moving away from solely punitive programs that have been shown to do little to rehabilitate offenders or make our communities safer.”
