Efficiencies in Corrections and Parole

How can Idaho's correctional system be downsized? Can we make the pardons and parole system operate more efficiently? Host Joan Cartan-Hansen looks at new reports evaluating how Idaho deals with prison inmates and ways of releasing prisoners back into the community. Cartan-Hansen is joined by Correction Department Director Brent Reinke; Senator Elliot Werk (D-Boise), Co-Chair of the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee; Representative Darrell Bolz (R-Caldwell), Vice Chair of the House Appropriations Committee; and Olivia Craven, Executive Director of the Idaho Commission of Pardons and Parole.
