IDGA: Prison & Correctional Facilities West

Denver, Colorado, USA
17-19, June, 2013

The US incarcerates more people than any other country in the world. There are approximately 117 federal prisons, 1200 state prisons, and 3,750 local detention/jail facilities in the US. Approximately 400,000 correctional professionals exist with an inmate population of 2.3 million on any given day. With new admissions, releases and transfers, almost 11 million inmates spend time in a correctional facility on an annual basis.

At this event high-end individuals from both, government and the industry, will be gathering to discuss the future needs of Corrections Facilities in the West. We will highlight key topics such as overcrowding, re-entry and recidivism, facility management and inmate reentry programs. Join us for this one of a kind event, and hear directly from those who are trying to implement these extensive changes to the prison system.
