Description

As the prison population continues to grow in both Alaska and the U.S. as a whole, the number of children who have a parent or parents incarcerated also continues to grow. The number of minor children in this situation nationwide is now estimated to be over 2 million. In Alaska, over 10 percent of children taken into custody by the Alaska Office of Children’s Services (OCS) in both 2006 and 2007 had at least one parent incarcerated. The overall population of Alaska children who have a parent incarcerated, including those children who are not in OCS custody, is undoubtedly much higher.
