Pay-to-Stay Programs in Correctional Facilities: The Full Symposium

These programs allow some offenders to pay a daily fee in order to serve their sentences in a city-run or privately-managed correctional facility rather than in a county jail.

The symposium considers the implications of these pay-to-stay programs.
