Building more prisons is not the answer

Friday, 27 January, 2017

The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies is one of a number signatories to a letter in The Guardian today calling for 'an immediate moratorium on prison construction and a national debate about how to build a safer society and secure communities instead of continuing with a failed policy of criminal justice expansion'.

The statement, organised by the Reclaim Justice Network, amassed more than 50 signatories from service delivery organisations, professionals, activists and academics.
