In April, Idaho Governor Brad Little toured the newly opened Connection and Intervention Station in Boise—a center he championed to help provide structure and resources for people on community supervision. Gov. Little participated in a group discussion with Connection and Intervention Station participants, people in reentry, and Idaho Department of Correction staff to learn more about their experiences with community supervision.

During his visit, Gov. Little learned more about the recent pandemic-related changes to supervision that keep staff and clients safe while ensuring that clients continue to make progress, including leveraging technology to support remote supervision.

Watch the video of Governor Little’s visit, arranged through the Face to Face initiative and produced with support from Arnold Ventures.

Face to Face, a project led by The CSG Justice Center, creates meaningful interactions between policymakers and people who have firsthand experience with the criminal justice system.

If I put a dollar into corrections that stops recidivism and changes people’s lives, that’s a dollar that’s going to pay off for years.
