Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett unveils criminal justice reform and new jail project


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Six months of exhaustive study, following years of debate and sometimes failed plans, has resulted in a game-changing half-billion dollar criminal justice reform and new jail proposal that Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett hopes will result in a fairer system and healthier Marion County.

“For it is a heroin epidemic and generational poverty that drives a rise in crime,” said Hogsett during his unveiling of a six-month long study. “A rise in crime creates an overcrowded jail, and an overcrowded jail and an overburdened system that drives budgets into the red. Today Indianapolis begins reforming its criminal justice system.”
