Correctional Control in the States

A new report released this week by Prison Policy Initiative, a Public Welfare Foundation grantee, examines various ways that states exercise correctional control over those involved in the criminal justice system. Some states that appear to be less punitive because they have fewer people locked up in prison still have large numbers of people under criminal justice control, including through local jails, parole, and, most frequently, probation.

The report, Correctional Control: Incarceration and Supervision by State, includes more than 100 interactive maps showing rates of correctional control in each state and in Washington, DC.
