The conservative approach to criminal justice:
fighting crime, supporting victims, and protecting taxpayers.

Alaska’s Corrections System

| February 6, 2014

Alaska has been on a two-decade incarceration binge with a growth rate 4 times greater than the state’s population.

This trajectory is unsustainable: the percentage of the state budget allocated to corrections grew by 25 percent since 2008.  However, through cost-effective, common sense reforms in sentencing and corrections, Alaska can reduce its reliance on costly prisons while keeping its citizens safe.

This new infographic by Right On Crime illustrates the the flaws of Alaska’s criminal justice system.
