Public Safety in an Era of Criminal Justice Reform

PAST EVENT Wed May 27 2020

Can America maintain public safety in an era of criminal justice reform and public health crises? In many parts of the country, crime rates are near all-time lows, but, in others, they are approaching all-time highs, even amidst an unprecedented lockdown brought on by Covid-19.

Measures such as bail reform and drug decriminalization have helped to bring on a decline in the national prison population, but dozens of states are projecting growth in their prison populations over the next decade. At the same time, other challenges, such as recidivism, continue to increase. Given all this, how should America tackle meaningful reform?

On May 27, Manhattan Institute senior fellow Jason Riley will join Harvard University’s Roland Fryer to discuss the diverse set of concerns driving America’s debate on criminal justice, followed by discussions with police chiefs and leading academics on the front lines of these reforms.
