Too Big to Succeed: The Impact of the Growth of Community Corrections and What Should Be Done About It, an important new report by researchers at the Columbia University Justice Lab
Excellent resources on the community supervision system:
Report on corrections spending: This report contains policy recommendations to reduce spending on corrections and improve public safety that Wisconsin never fully implemented.
Public Policy Poll: 55 percent of people in Wisconsin support cutting the state’s prison population.
Health Impact Assessment: Treatment Alternatives and Diversion (TAD) Program in Wisconsin: The HIA found that increased funding for TAD programs to $75 million per year would likely reduce the prison and jail population, reduce overall crime, improve mental health, and strengthen families.
