MT Law Enforcement say investments in early education will prevent crime

Posted: Updated:

Today Montana Law Enforcement leaders released a report in Helena Showing a state-federal early learning proposal that could possibly lead to 200 fewer prisoners and save the State of Montana over $18 million each year.

Helena Members of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids gathered gathered at the Rocky Mountain Development Corporation Head Start Facility in Helena to promote the new state-federal "I'm the Guy You Pay Later" proposal, which urges America to cut crime by investing in high-quality early learning education and care.

Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton says "The journey for inmates across the state starts during the early years with a series of school failures, it is important to note here that this is not an extension of Head Start, but a state and federal partnership that will enable states like Montana to create high-quality preschool and early childhood programs that are based on criteria that have a proven impact on kids lives."

Sheriff Leo Dutton and Lewis and Clark County Attorney Leo Gallagher spoke at the event today. They are among the more than 1,000 members who signed a letter to Congress to work in partnership with administration to enact the proposal which would help provide resources to create and strengthen preschools to serve low to moderate income four-year-olds nationwide. Sheriff Dutton and Attorney Gallagher concluded the press conference today by reading to preschoolers.
