NCACC Justice and Public Safety Guiding Principles


The statewide judicial system, including effective ancillary services and programs, should be adequately funded and staffed in order to provide an efficient environment for judicial process and to instill public confidence in the justice system.
  • Adjudication should be swift, in order to minimize overcrowding in county jails.
  • Bonds should be reasonable, and effective pre-trial screening and population management efforts should be encouraged.
  • Criminals should be held accountable and required to pay a greater portion of the State and county costs resulting from their crimes through increased jail fees, service of process fees, and court facilities fees.
  • Effective prevention programs, alternatives to incarcerations and other related services should be supported in an effort to help reduce recidivism rates and lower county jail costs.
