How can we reword "big ... offender." in the following text?

"In my heart and my head it makes absolute good sense, logical sense, that if big, violent offenders are out of circulation then they will not be committing those crimes. We are making our very best effort to ensure Virginians are safe."

Big - in the sense of major

Offenders - usually people who break the law or the rules - depends on the context here.

So big offenders are the major or most important law-breakers here

Thank you, Paul. So, we will rewrite as: ... that if major violent law-breakers are out of circulation then they will not be committing those crimes... Is that right?
