Officials Reviewing Report On NH Prisons

Print More

New Hampshire officials are meeting to review a report on the state’s prisons that recommends ways to reduce recidivism to save money.

The Council of State Governments Justice Center says New Hampshire can potentially save millions of dollars if it radically alters how it handles freed inmates who are returned to prison.

Representatives of all three branches of state government have been working with the Justice Center since September.

The group will meet Monday afternoon in Concord to discuss the report.

The center’s recommendations include focusing more supervision on high-risk offenders, investing in community treatment programs and releasing nonviolent offenders who violate probation or parole more quickly.
