How the prison population stopped increasing and communities became safer

At the end of each chapter in your textbook, there is an item called “The Case.” This discussion requires you to read “The Case” and answer the questions posed at the end of Chapter 14 – page 247. Your response to each of the questions should be at least one paragraph long and should include support from the textbook, a journal article, book, or newspaper. Be sure to include a reference page that shows, in APA style, all the sources you used. (The textbook this came from is Corrections (Justice Series) 3rd Edition

  3. How do these new solutions lead to safer communities?
