Kamala Harris


    Kamala Harris wrote the poorly edited but important book “Smart on Crime” that reports on the success of DA office programs designed to divert first-time nonviolent offenders away from the criminal justice system and onto a more productive path of life. Smart on Crime programs are the only systemic efforts to reduce the crime rate and size of prison population that actually work. Richmond DA office recently began a program based on “Smart on Crime.”
