Texas is home to over 700 prisons and jails, which require complex infrastructure, a skilled workforce, and a variety of public and private providers to operate the multi-billion-dollar system efficiently. How is the Texas’ economy impacted by this facet of the criminal justice system? Join us to explore and discuss the history, legislation, data trends, ethics and priorities that shape and impact the business of incarceration in the Lone Star state.
