Lois Ahrens, Founding Director of The Real Cost of Prisons Project, takes us behind the walls of our state penal institutions to focus on the particular risks faced by prisoners, guards, and staff in these potential hotspots. She also makes it clear that those in authority – including the governor, district attorneys, and parole boards – have a responsibility to act on behalf of these vulnerable populations.
