Keene - Private Prisons, the Public's Problem, a talk by Caroline Isaacs
The 3 companies that run for-profit prisons in Arizona have all submitted bids to take over New Hampshire's prison system. Caroline Isaacs, who directs the AFSC's Arizona Program in Tucson, has thoroughly investigated their performance and found it lacking. Her report, published in Feburary, revealed widespread and persistent problems in the areas of safety, accountability, and cost. She will share her findings during a 3-day speaking tour in New Hampshire. Sponsored by the KSC Criminal Justice Department. Free and open to all.
