Washington State Institute for Public Policy
March 2004
The 2003 Washington State Legislature directed the Institute to determine if there are changes to Washington’s sentencing structure that could reduce the growth in the prison population, and its associated costs, without endangering public safety. Our findings will be published in two parts. In this report—Part I—we provide an overall context for the study by reviewing Washington’s sentencing system and examining the growth trends of the prison population. Part II of this study, which estimates the impact that prison sentences have on recidivism, was published in June 30, 2004.
