The U.S. corrections system has gone through an unprecedented expansion in
the last few decades. With more than 2.3 million people incarcerated, the United
States has the highest number of prisoners in the world. One out of 100 American
adults is behind bars – and one out of 32 is on probation, parole or in prison.
Tough drug enforcement, stringent sentencing laws and high rates of recidivism
have fueled the growth.
