Reduce Crime

In recent years, the United States has made admirable progress in reducing its crime rate. National crime rates are not low enough, however, to make American taxpayers feel they are receiving their money’s worth. Conservatives recognize that there are still far too many victims and too many Americans living in fear in their own homes and neighborhoods.  Accordingly, conservatives are united in seeking to use the limited resources in both the law enforcement and corrections systems to maximize further reductions in the crime rate for every taxpayer dollar spent.
