South Carolina Department of Corrections Inspector General Frank Kelley Joins Fight Crime: Invest in Kids To Steer Kids Away From Crime
South Carolina Department of Corrections Inspector General Frank Kelley has joined Fight Crime: Invest in Kids.
Washington, DC – South Carolina Department of Corrections Inspector General Frank Kelley, the agency’s top law enforcement officer, has joined the organization Fight Crime: Invest in Kids. The group includes more than 5,000 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors, and attorneys general nationwide, including 104 in South Carolina.
“I want to do everything I can to give young people a chance to succeed,” Kelley said. “We see young people enter the prison system every day who could have had a different life if someone had invested in them. This also includes victims of crime and sex trafficking, who particularly need support and services to recover from the trauma of their childhood.”
For over 25 years, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids members have spoken out in support of evidence-based strategies that promote public safety by ensuring children and youth have the opportunity to grow up to lead productive lives.
Founded in 1996, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids advocates for smart, bipartisan state and federal solutions to promote public safety, such as evidence-based voluntary parent coaching programs for new parents that prevent child abuse and neglect; high-quality early childhood education that increases educational success and graduation rates; afterschool programs that give kids a clear path toward productive futures and away from crime; and proven coaching programs that strengthen families and get kids back on track.
