CORI reform

City of Springfield, Office of the Mayor

        Massachusetts casino regulators are being urged to relax restrictions on people with criminal records getting jobs in the state’s casinos.

The report, titled “The Continuing Challenge of CORI Reform”, sponsored by the Boston Foundation and the Crime and Justice Institute at Community Resources for Justice, aimed to gauge if a key provision in recent reforms to the Criminal Offender Record Information System have been effective.

Project Coordinator Len Engel, of the Crime and Justice Institute, said that the Boston Foundation approached CRJ with a simple question in mind.
