The Columbus Dispatch features treatment-focused Franklin County Corrections Center
With an emphasis on treatment and rehabilitation, the Franklin County Corrections Center continues to make headlines. The project has expanded to include a female-only pod which will provide additional programming and aim to reduce recidivism.
Why focus on women? Deputy County Administrator Kris Long states within the article, “That is the fastest-growing population that we have. What we have found in other jails across the country is that often women are left out of the conversation or an afterthought. There are best practices and gender-responsive pods that are actually to treat female inmates.”
