San Fran City Govt’s Response to Rising Crime Rate: Change ‘Convicted Felon’ to ‘Justice-Involved Person’

Crime industry welcomes "person first" terminology

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors proposed new language guidelines to re-shape the way people talk about those in the crime industry. Words such as "felon," "offender," and "convict" would be replaced by "person first" terminology. Under the proposal, a convicted criminal would be referred to as a "formerly incarcerated person," or "justice-involved individual," or even a "returning resident."
