Mission Statement

The Mission of the Spokane Regional Criminal Justice Commission is to conduct a comprehensive review of the entire Spokane regional criminal justice system by examining the entire spectrum from pre-arrest (prevention programs), arrest, prosecution and defense, sentence, incarceration (including alternatives to incarceration), re-entry and recidivism.

The goal of the Commission is to make specific recommendations to the City and County which will address reduction of crime, the efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal justice system, the effective use of detention and alternatives to detention, the effectiveness of re-entry programs, and ultimately to put in place a criminal justice system which is efficient, effective, and guarantees strict adherence to the mandates of the Constitution of the United States and the State of Washington.
