Criminal Justice

Keeping communities safe through fair processes, fair laws, and just outcomes.

Buckeye’s Priorities:

  • Ensure the punishment fits the crime and that our criminal justice system maximizes public safety with its limited resources.
  • Fight against the unjust practice of civil asset forfeiture that allows law enforcement to take property without a conviction.
  • Fight the overuse and misuse of the criminal law.
  • Replace Ohio’s failing cash bail system with proven risk-assessment tools that provide a fairer, more efficient way to keep Ohio’s communities safe and secure. Download the handout to learn why bail reform matters.
