rr_track_sunspot.jpgThe head of Arizona corrections says violence inside state prisons has sharply decreased, and released inmates are less likely to return to prison. It’s the result of a new public policy innovation that begins preparing prisoners for reentry to society from their first day in prison. Arizona’s “Getting Ready” program is garnering nationwide attention for upending every expectation for prisoners. From Day One, inmates are treated like adults, lowering the chance they will return.
