Representative Matt Claman and the UAA Justice Center will host an Alaska State Forum on Public Safety to update stakeholders and the public on the status of justice reinvestment in Alaska and examine Alaska’s crime trends and responses to those in the criminal justice system with substance abuse issues and behavioral health needs.
Criminal justice experts from the Crime and Justice Institute (CJI) will travel to Alaska to facilitate a data-rich public safety discussion between a broad cross-section of policymakers, criminal justice professionals, behavioral health practitioners, and advocates to identify opportunities to increase public safety. The event will begin with a presentation from CJI to provide a national perspective on Criminal Justice Reform. Then, the forum will highlight shorter presentations followed by panel discussions among state stakeholders, leaders, and experts.
This event is free and open to the public. Please register online to receive additional information prior to the event.

Last year, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) announced it would provide support for up to 25 states to host a State Forum on Public Safety as a continuation of the 50-State Summit on Public Safety that was held in November 2017 in Washington, D.C. In February, the BJA approved Representative Claman’s application to host a forum in Alaska.
