Chisholm to make major speech at Marquette Law School
Date: Friday, Feb. 11, 2011
Time: 12:15 p.m.
Place: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall
Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm will deliver a major speech concerning the future of public safety in the region at Marquette University Law School, Friday, Feb. 11, at 12:15 p.m. The event will take place at Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
Chisholm’s address, “Smarter, Safer, and Sustainable: A Proposal for the Future of Public Safety in Wisconsin,” will be based on the premise that the current criminal justice system entails soaring and unsustainable costs, without intelligently addressing the risks posed by offenders. District Attorney Chisholm will propose substantial revisions to the status quo, including with respect to the response of police and prosecutors to crime, truth in sentencing, early release and prison reentry, and aspects of the state’s budget. Following his remarks, Chisholm will take questions from Mike Gousha, distinguished fellow in law and public policy, and from members of the audience.
