In a free society, the government's ability to efficiently apprehend, prosecute, and punish criminals in a swift and decisive system of justice, is the most powerful deterrent to criminal behavior.
The Criminal Justice Legal Foundation has earned a national reputation for removing legal obstacles to the use of this deterrent, while assuring that the constitutional rights of the accused are respected. The decisions won by CJLF benefit all Americans who depend upon law enforcement for protection from crime.
