THE COST OF CORRECTIONS:
Impact on our Communities, State Budget, and Public Safety
Since 1990, California’s prison population has increased by 73% and corrections spending has grown at nearly four times the rate of general spending as a whole. California also has the highest recidivism rate in the nation. Many are calling for reform for California’s criminal justice system. What reforms have been made, will they work, and are they enough?
