How Prisons could be different



Prisons could have dog training programs

Prisoners could receive education and job training before release

Solitary confinement in prisons could be limited or abolished

Private prisons could be banned, limited, or have increased oversight

CEO's program could be an effective model to reduce recidivism

Incarceration could not be treated as "voluntary unemployment" to calculate child support arrears

Drug policy and government funds could focus on providing treatment and prevention rather than punishment

Illegal drug users could be sent to treatment centers rather than prisons

Community-based alternatives to prison could be used to lower recidivism rates and prison populations

Ex-prisoners could have better access to benefits to decrease recidivism
