What is Community Correction, (i.e. the Colorado "halfway house" system) and how do they work? How much of our tax dollars are spent on corrections, and how are they allocated? Where do private detention facilities get their funding, and how do they function? What are the strengths/weakness of this "alternative to incarceration," and how can the system be improved. We believe the community should understand the answer to these questions and thereby be able to effectively engage policy makers when it comes to decision-making on these important issues. Therefore, we regularly hold forums and workshops to provide this knowledge to community member, so they can become and remain involved in efforts for change.
