Recidivism Rates Drop

Less than 40% of the inmates released from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation found their way back behind bars one year after their release. While this rate, nearly 4 in 10 may sound high; it is the lowest rate in 25 years. JP Tremblay, Assistant Secretary for Communications for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and Barry Krisberg President of the National Council on Crime and Delinquency join Patt to discuss what these numbers may mean for California.
