The Final Report of the Racial and Ethnic Fairness Taskforce

Group: Utah State Courts

URL: http://www.utcourts.gov/specproj/retaskforce/Reportfinal.pdf

Description

Although this report constitutes the culmination of work begun in March of 1996, it does not purport to present a roadmap for “solution” of the problem of racial and ethnic bias in the justice system. The task of ensuring racial and ethnic fairness in the justice system is never done. It requires ongoing, conscious effort by all the players in the justice system, including the affected minority communities. The report of the Task Force proposes an ongoing, conscious, and coordinated effort across the entire criminal and juvenile justice system, with the Judicial Council and the Administrative Office of the Courts continuing to take a leading role. The plan proposes the transformation of the Task Force from a Judicial Council commissioned body to a true private-public partnership between multiple entities and perspectives which will commit to bringing about real change in Utah.
