OFM releases analysis of statewide correctional needs

The Legislature directed the Office of Financial Management (OFM) to conduct an analysis of statewide adult correctional needs, including how operational costs are incurred among local governments. The impetus for this study was county and regional jails looking for opportunities to use extra existing capacity and the opportunity to explore partnerships between the state and locals as an alternative to construction of a new state prison. The study looks at the feasibility of collaboration between the Department of Corrections and local entities to most efficiently meet detention needs across the state.
