  • Overcrowded, understaffed jails
  • A record number of security lockdowns
  • Thousands of inmate-on-inmate and staff assaults
  • Steadily increasing mental health and addiction problems
  • Privatized institutions with dangerous security problems
  • Unmonitored offenders and unsafe communities
