Breaking Out of the Prison Crisis

Record #:
In 1984, more than three-quarters of new admissions to North Carolina prisons were for non-violent offenses. The state must decide whether it can afford to continue imprisoning people who commit property and “public order” crimes. State leaders can divert some offenders to highly supervised work programs or spend up to $300 million to building more prisons.
