“If you keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results, well, that’s insane,” said Jones.

Jones says the committee will look at alternatives to incarceration and ways to make courts more efficient, as well longer-term efforts like improving education and police-community relations.

“What is beautiful about this is my most conservative colleagues can buy into this because of the potential for cost reduction,” said Jones.
