LARAMIE – Wyoming’s prisons are full, and inmate populations are on pace to continue to swell by 9 percent, increasing costs for the state by an estimated tens of millions of dollars by 2023.
That’s why analysts from the Council of State Governments Justice Center analyzed Wyoming’s criminal justice system and made recommendations based on their findings. Their goal is to find ways to reduce those inflating costs and meet more people’s needs as part of a national justice reinvestment effort taking place across the country.
