Months after prison reform bill takes effect, progress slow
from The Anniston Star
Since a sweeping prison reform bill went into effect in Alabama in January, the state has hired 37 of the 112 parole officers it hoped to hire to watch newly released inmates, state officials say. With other aspects of the bill, progress is a little harder to assess. "New policies often take months, and more often years, to fully implement and allow time to measure," said Bennet Wright, director of the Alabama Sentencing Commission.
