Alternatives to Incarceration: Suggestions from the Past
Group: University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center
Crowded prisons and a runaway corrections budget have led many in Alaska to call for alternatives to incarceration. Before an alternative sentencing program is initiated, certain questions about it should be addressed: (1) Is it a genuine alternative to incarceration? (2) Is it fair? (3) Is it good for the community, the offender, and the victim? This article examines evidence from a former alternative program, the Alaska Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI), as a basis for discussing these questions in the belief this may prove instructive in establishing new alternatives.
