John Perry, from the VT Department of Corrections (DOC) is a guest on my TV show, "Correcting Corrections." In this 50 minute interview, he notes the progress Vermont has made with a program designed to save the state money by finding alternatives to prison for non-violent offenders.
During this interview, we also discuss why VT's DOC estimates that only 4% of crimes result in incarceration.
This taping was set at DemocracyFest, a national annual conference of progressive advocates and activists, held this year in South Burlington.
