Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin joined state leaders on June 19, 2012 to announce a bipartisan and inter-government effort to reduce prison growth and prevent crime using a data-driven “justice reinvestment” approach. To guide this comprehensive analysis of West Virginia’s criminal justice system, the state established a working group of legislative leaders from across the political spectrum, top court officials, state agency directors, and criminal justice stakeholders to review trends in the state’s criminal justice system and ultimately develop policy options for state leaders to review in time for the 2013 legislative session.
