California Prison Guards Sit Out Debate On Letting Non-Violent Prisoners Go Free

When California passed a massive realignment plan in 2011, shifting thousands of inmates from state prisons to county jails, the state guaranteed prison guards that their staffing levels would no longer be set in a ratio to the prison population, said Dan Macallair of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice.

With the promise not to reduce the prison budget and maintain staffing levels, I think it’s neutralized a lot of their concern,” said Macallair.
