In early March, the Delaware Center for Justice issued a statement to lawmakers, Department of Correction officials, community leaders, and key partners that outlines our recommendations for improving safety in Delaware’s correctional facilities and the wider community in the wake of the incident in Smyrna. Our three primary recommendations are to:
1) reduce Delaware’s prison population
2) enhance the Department of Correction’s grievance process, and
3) enhance programming within Delaware’s correctional facilities.
The statement can be found in its entirety here.
