Testifying before the Interbranch Criminal and Juvenile Justice Council in Concord

On Monday, May 18th, three Policy Research Shop students, Schuyler Evans, Christopher Zablocki, and Kahlie Dufresne testified before the Interbranch Criminal and Juvenile Justice Council (ICJJC) in Concord, New Hampshire. The ICJJC is chaired by John T. Broderick, Jr., Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. The testimony provided research results and policy recommendations on the students’ report entitled, “Improving Coordination of the County Jails and State Prisons to Meet Mental Health and Substance Abuse Challenges.”

Chief Justice Broderick and Commissioner William Wrenn, Department of Corrections, welcomed the students to the Council and thanked them for their work. This experience provided the students with an invaluable opportunity to hear directly from state officials who are working on one of the most pressing challenges of our time.
