Fort Collins Now publisher Joel Dyer is one of the panelists scheduled to speak at a community forum Wednesday about prisons and public safety.

The other panelists are Ari Zavaras, Colorado Department of Corrections executive director; Laurie Stolen, detention program manager for the Larimer County Detention Center; and Christie Donner, executive director of the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition.

Dyer is the author of The Perpetual Prisoner Machine, a critical take on the American criminal justice system.

He and Zavaras have clashed before on issues relating to prisons and recidivism. Dyer is a proponent of alternative sentencing programs rather than expanding jails.

When he was nominated to lead DOC, Zavaras said he would strive to reduce recidivism—re-offending—among Colorado’s prison population.

Kefalas said the event was intended to open a community dialogue about the issue.

“There is a growing consensus that Colorado's criminal justice system is breaking the budgets of state and local government. To build a financially sustainable criminal justice system that advances public safety and justice, we need reforms that emphasize prevention and common sense,” he said.

This event is free and the public is encouraged to raise questions, share personal stories and offer ideas for reforming Colorado’s criminal justice system.
