Smile JRI designed to slow state’s prison population growth & reduce recidivism

Approved by the Legislature in 2012, JRI is designed to slow the state’s prison population growth rate and reduce recidivism rates. It includes nine months of supervision for all inmates leaving prison, establishment of facilities where inmates who violate probation can get treatment for addictions or mental health issues, and a grant program to help law enforcement agencies.
In theory, front-end expenditures would produce savings that could be reinvested back into corrections. The model has worked successfully in a number of states, including some that (like Oklahoma) are solidly conservative and pride themselves on cracking down on criminal offenders. Those other states have come to understand that the current approach to corrections — putting more people away for longer periods of time — is unsustainable.

I copied this from ok-cure, ): Great article for our guys, If everyone who has a loved one in prison for violation's, you may want to write Mary Fallen who is now finally looking at this. Maybe Just Maybe we can get a bill to help release our guys or girls who are in prison for revoke, and get them sent home and get there help they may need, instead of prison. It don't hurt to try!
