Jan Brewer: Reduce crime by punishing criminals

Crime and violence in Arizona continue to trend downward. Arizonans have reduced crime by punishing criminals, and not by infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

Jan Brewer: In State Legislature, pushed truth in sentencing

Brewer spent 14 years in the Arizona State Legislature, first as a state representative from 1983 to 1986, and then as state senator from 1987 to 1996. Brewer helped to win passage of numerous landmark reforms that continue to serve millions of Arizonans today, including tax relief and budget reform; truth in sentencing; open enrollment, school report cards, and charter schools; clean air and water legislation and state trust land preservation.

Jane Dee Hull: $1.1M to collect DNA samples from all prisoners

We are applying new technology to protect our citizens. Last year, we enacted a bill to obtain DNA samples from persons convicted of murder, burglary and crimes causing serious injury. DNA is our cutting edge tool for solving crimes. That is why I am recommending $1.1 million to collect and analyze blood samples from virtually all state prisoners.
