With 40 years of experience helping restore men and women behind bars, Prison Fellowship advocates for federal and state criminal justice reforms that transform those responsible for crime, validate victims, and encourage communities to play a role in creating a safe, redemptive, and just society.
In recent years Arizona has seen an increase in its incarceration rate by almost 7% and has realized a decrease in its crime rate that is only half of the national decrease. This increase in incarceration follows successes the state has previously realized in other areas, such as probation reform. Governor Doug Ducey pushed for several criminal justice reforms in his 2016 State of the State Address, specifically highlighting the state’s many unsolved sexual assault cases. He created a task force to develop and recommend a statewide standard process for sexual assault evidence kits.
