Today is Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

But this isn't a once-a-year thing. Every day, we're grateful for extraordinary acts of courage performed by our state's law enforcement professionals. They put their lives on the line to keep the rest of us safe.

So, from all of us:

In New Jersey, we're transforming the youth justice system. A key part of the plan: "Restorative Justice Hubs," a pilot program that will connect juveniles in 4 cities to rehabilitative services. Today, we're issuing rules to kickstart the program. https://bit.ly/3Fgujek

This initiative is part of the Governor Phil Murphy Administration's ongoing efforts to address the stark racial disparities in our state's juvenile incarceration rates. By working with community leaders and organizations, we’re enhancing public safety while protecting at-risk youth.

In July, on my 1st day as Acting AG, I asked all 17 divisions in our office to identify concrete steps they could take to advance racial justice before the end of the calendar year. Today, we're rolling out the results of this department-wide initiative.

We recognize that the Department of Law & Public Safety can't eradicate racial disparities on its own. But we have a moral obligation to use the tools at our disposal to push progress, bit by bit, day after day, to fight injustice. Here's what we're doing: https://bit.ly/3q78DLr

And those are just the highlights. The nearly 100 projects we’ve identified underscore Governor Phil Murphy's commitment to pursue justice for all residents, and we're proud to be taking action. More than ever, we need to come together to forge the path forward for racial justice.
