Criminal justice reform committee releases recommendations to Reynolds


Gov. Kim Reynolds accepted the final report of the Governor’s FOCUS Committee on Criminal Justice Reform on Thursday during the 8th Annual Iowa Summit on Justice and Disparities. The committee, which Reynolds announced at last year’s summit, was charged with making recommendations for building an unbiased criminal justice system in Iowa. The committee’s recommendations include a statutory prohibition on disparate treatment in law enforcement activities, requiring data collection on race and ethnicity in law enforcement stops and analysis of that data. “Taken together, these recommendations would represent another historic step forward in Iowa’s leadership in civil rights and criminal justice reform,” Reynolds said in a press release. “I look forward to reviewing the committee’s recommendations as I lay out my 2021 legislative agenda and move criminal justice reform forward. I would also like to thank Lt. Gov Adam Gregg and all of the Governor’s FOCUS committee members for their work this year.”
