Ashby Demands Action To Curb Rampant Growth In Crime

Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I-Castleton) today joined with Assembly and Senate colleagues to demand immediate action by our State Legislature to enhance public safety in response to the unprecedented rise in crime over the past year.

“Despite only being in effect for little over a year, the overhaul of our State’s Judicial and Cash Bail systems has proven to not only be a tremendous failure but also a driving force in making our communities less safe,” said Ashby.“It is imperative that we empower our Judges and law enforcement officers with the ability to properly carry out the oath they take to protect and serve our community.”
