(SALEM) - Marion County Sheriff Jason Myers has been selected as a member of the new Executive Session on Community Corrections convening over the next three years at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. This prestigious panel, consisting of approximately thirty of the leading policymakers, practitioners and researchers from across the nation, will help shape the meaning and future of community corrections in the United States. The Session aims to develop best practices and thi nking for professionals across the public safety and criminal justice spectrum.

Members of the Executive Session are nominated and ultimately selected by a core steering committee based on the individual's influence, standing and reputation for innovativeness and forward thinking. Sheriff Myers is the sole representative from the State of Oregon.

Sheriff Myers attended the first meeting of the Session in September, 2013. He commented, "After attending the first meeting, I realized that we truly have some great, cutting edge programs in place in Marion County. I see the Executive Session as an opportunity for us to share some of those ideas with the rest of the country and to learn about other best practices from leading experts and academics and to bring those back to Oregon. I'm honored to have been selected for this Executive Session, and I look forward to positive changes in community corrections."

The executive Session on Community Corrections is forming at an appropriate time, now that the national conversation regarding correctional policies has shifted to a reform movement as states explore new strategies for managing a growing prison and jail populations and historically high corresponding budgets. American correctional policy may well be shaped by the work of the session.

Members of the Session include leaders in probation, parole, corrections, judiciary, policing and prosecution, advocates, scholars, elected officials and experienced observers of U.S. correctional policies.

The Session will continue to meet several times through the Spring of 2016. More information about Harvard's Executive Sessions can be found at: www.hks.harvard.edu/programs/criminaljustice/research-publications/executive-sessions
