Coalition for Effective Public Safety

Coalition for Effective Public Safety (CEPS) is a California-based criminal justice reform coalition of approximately 40 organizations united behind specific principles aimed at increasing public safety in California while curtailing the reliance upon costly, ineffective practices such as mass incarceration. CEPS works through advocacy, organizing and public education to reduce prison spending by:

a. eliminating barriers to successful re-entry for those coming home from prison; b. reducing recidivism through effective educational and vocational programming and comprehensive treatment; c. opposing new prison construction in California; d. utilizing parole reform, sentencing reform and re-investment in communities to reduce the number of people in prison.
