2022 MLC Criminal Justice & Public Safety Committee Meeting



The Midwestern Legislative Conference Criminal Justice & Public Safety Committee met in July in Wichita, Kan., in conjunction with the 76th Annual Meeting of the MLC.

Its meeting included a roundtable discussion among legislators as well as a presentation on the work of the CSG Justice Center in the Midwest.

The committee also co-hosted (with the MLC Health & Human Services Committee) a session examining the use of mental health courts as a method of diverting people with mental illnesses from the corrections system to, instead, connecting them with the services and supports they need for treatment.
