Alternatives to Present Uses of the Jails

Record #:
Finding alternatives to jails entails freeing prison space for those awaiting sentencing or detained to prevent future crimes and reconsidering laws and establishing new facilities. Some of these alternatives suggest freeing those delinquent on bills but otherwise deemed reliable. Changes would also address creating new facilities for holding mentally ill individuals in newly constructed holding centers separate from traditional jails.
