A recent Pew study found widespread support across party, age, and ethnic groups for shorter sentences and alternatives to incarceration for non-violent crimes. Studies have shown these methods, such as probation periods, to be equally-- or more-- effective than simply locking more individuals up for longer times. Irrefutably, these measures are less expensive: annually, the U.S. pays $31,286 per prisoner.
