A Fresh Start: Understanding Clean Slate


The Clean Slate package, signed into law in 2020, makes it easier for people with past convictions to start fresh. It simplifies the process for clearing records and helps make things fair for everyone. The police are working on making sure courts all across Michigan can access these changes. This helps people with past convictions find jobs and places to live more easily. Sharing this information helps everyone understand and support giving people second chances in life.
