(Indianapolis, Ind.) - The state is working with a research group to look at ways to lower Indiana’s prison population while reducing crime.
Pew Center on the States member Adam Gelb says the study will look at sentencing and incarceration in Indiana.
Governor Mitch Daniels says the state can do better in cutting crime and keeping prison costs down.
Daniels says the $100,000 cost of the study will come from a federal grant.
The report is expected to be completed in time for the 2011 legislative session.
