Ryan Labrecque, Criminology and Criminal Justice faculty, wrote an article, "How a New Inmate Triage System Could Reduce the Use of Solitary Confinement and Improve Prison Safety," for the London School of Economics and Political Science United States Politics and Policy blog. Labrecque discusses how a new tool he created can be used by corrections staff to triage inmates by risk. He argues that this tool can be effective in reducing the use of restrictive housing and increasing prison safety by proactively targeting high-risk inmates for treatment services upon their entry into the prison system.
