Governing in Crisis: Fostering a Fairer and Less Costly Criminal Justice System.

President Judge Kim Berkeley Clark of Pennsylvania’s Fifth Judicial District will discuss how Allegheny County has responded to those challenges and also will discuss the reform efforts underway to make Allegheny County’s criminal justice system fairer and less costly, without compromising public safety.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unique challenges for the criminal justice system. These include the general challenge of maintaining the system in a time of social distancing and stay-at-home orders. They also include the more focused issue of dealing fairly with those confined in jail who would not pose a serious risk to the community if released but who are at a high risk of contracting COVID-19 if they continue to be held in the close quarters of the jail.
