How to Run a Prison

Listen Now

About a dozen Afghan prison officials just wrapped up a three-week visit to Colorado. They stayed in a former women’s prison in Canon City, which has been transformed into an international corrections training center. It’s run by the U.S. State Department and the Colorado Department of Corrections, and it’s designed to help foreign countries improve their prisons. CPR’s Andrea Dukakis spent a day at the center with the Afghan delegation. Then, she speaks with the State Department's Steve Kraft about how the training center came about.
