SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah officials will soon be holding a series of public hearings around the state to allow people to offer ideas about reforming the criminal justice system.

The Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice has scheduled three hearings to allow residents to offer feedback.

The hearings stem from Gov. Gary Herbert’s call in his 2014 State of the State address for the commission to review the criminal justice system.

Herbert’s office says in a statement that the governor wants to reduce repeated offenders and help inmates transition back to society.

A hearing on March 27 will be in St. George, with another meeting April 3 in Salt Lake City and April 4 in Logan.
