Evidence-based options to reduce prison construction, crime rates

Via Doc Berman and Corrections Sentencing, see the new report from the Washington State Institute for Public Policy entitled "Evidence-Based Public Policy Options to Reduce Future Prison Construction, Criminal Justice Costs, and Crime Rates" (pdf).

Given Texas' current prison overincarceration crisis, this report should be must reading for Texas pols who want to avoid spending $2 billion to construct and staff new prisons.
