How do other states deal with overcrowded, understaffed prisons?
The state of Washington has about 19,000 inmates, slightly fewer than Alabama. But the similarity ends there. Washington's prison workforce includes 3,500 correctional officers — triple the size of Alabama's and better paid. Washington also has newer and less crowded prisons — with better funding than what Alabama's system has gotten.
