RECOMMENDATIONS ARE OFFERED FOR IMPLEMENTING THESE PRINCIPLES THROUGH COMMUNITY PLACEMENT, LOCAL DETENTION, AND STATE INSTITUTIONS. TABULAR DATA REGARDING THE EXISTING CORRECTIONAL SYSTEM ARE PRESENTED. THE APPENDIXES PROVIDE SENTENCED OFFENDER PROJECTIONS, NEW INSTITUTION COMPONENTS, AND COST COMPARISON COMPUTATIONS.
