Privatization/harmful cuts

Safely reducing the prisoner population is the most effective way to reduce corrections spending. CAPPS opposes corrections cost reductions or cost shifts that harm prisoners, their families and/or corrections staff.

In Michigan, private companies may operate entire prisons or specific prison services, such as medical care, mental health treatment and prisoner store operations. CAPPS is concerned about the actual cost savings, transparency and accountability of privatized operations.
