Illinois Senate Republican Leader John Curran: Gov. Pritzker needs to enact reforms at PRB for public safety

Illinois Senate Republican Leader John Curran (R-Downers Grove) released the following statement in response to Gov. JB Pritzker’s appointment of an executive director to the Illinois Prisoner Review Board:

“Gov. Pritzker has still failed to provide a transparent accounting of the breakdown in the PRB process that led to the deadly release of Crosetti Brand. We welcome any addition that will help make the Board more effective at improving public safety, but a new staff position is not going to make up for an activist Governor appointing unqualified board members who operate with little to no transparency. Structural reforms such as raising the experience standards for PRB Board Members, increasing transparency requirements for hearings, and timely release notifications for crime victims and their families, are still desperately needed to improve public safety.”
