Inside Alaska’s Prisons

A three-part series on the prison system in Alaska, by Corey Allen-Young, on KTUU (Feb. 2014):

Part One: At Goose Creek Correctional Center, staff are all about organization. No matter what the prison’s nearly 1,300 male inmates are doing during the day, it has to be something that will benefit them in the future.

Part Two: About what it is like to be a Correctional Officer in Alaska’s prison system.

Part Three: As inmates leave Alaska’s prison system, inmates need help to transition successfully back into society. After being released, convicted felon Bess Donovan says she quickly found out there wasn’t a lot of options out there for her to succeed.
