U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee William C. Killian hosted  a reentry summit this week at Chattanooga State Community College, the Chattanoogan reports. At the direction of the attorney general in early 2013, the Justice Department launched a comprehensive review of the criminal justice system in order to identify reforms that would ensure federal laws are enforced more fairly and — in an era of reduced budgets — more efficiently. “The goal of reentry is reduction of crime and recidivism,” Killian said.
