As previously reported the state of Wyoming is trying to figure out what to do about issues related to prison overcrowding and public safety. Marc Pelka is the Deputy Director of the Council of State Governments Justice Center who is helping the state find ways to deal with offenders earlier in life and find ways to keep recently released inmates from violating parole or probation.
He was in Cheyenne this week as part of a conference dealing with these topics and others. Pelka’s project is called Justice Reinvestment, he explains it to Wyoming Public Radio’s Bob Beck.
