Criminal Justice Initiative Final Report
Group: South Dakota Department of Corrections
The work group reviewed extensive analyses of state criminal justice data including prison, parole, probation, and sentencing information; discussed the programs, policies, and practices of the criminal justice system; examined practices proven to reduce recidivism; and assessed policy options for South Dakota. Throughout this process, the work group’s key findings and policy options were reviewed and guided by a Council of Advisors. The Council was composed of former Attorneys General, a former Supreme Court Justice, a law professor, former legislators, the State Bar Association President, and a Presiding Circuit Court Judge. In addition, a victim, survivor and advocate roundtable was held, and the attendees provided the work group with policy ideas and key priorities from the victim perspective. Chaired by Secretary of Tribal Relations, J.R. LaPlante, a Native American Subcommittee was formed to analyze data and provide the CJI Work Group with recommendations and feedback. Outreach and meetings were conducted with tribal representatives across South Dakota, including representatives from the tribal judiciary and legal community, Native American behavioral health and treatment experts, and tribal law enforcement.
