New Article on the Costs of the Aging Prison Population

Please see the recent on-line article by Emily Widra of the Prison Policy Initiative entitled: "The aging prison population: Causes, costs, and consequences"

This is an excellent up to date treatment of the topic. The introduction to the article states: "New Census Bureau data show the U.S. population is getting older — and at the same time, our prison populations are aging even faster. In this briefing, we examine the inhumane, costly, and counterproductive practice of locking up older adults."
