Ohio Prison Oversight
The Correctional Institution Inspection Committee, which oversees prison operations in Ohio, will soon likely be closed with its workload shifted to the inspector general's office. The committee was established in 1977 to provide legislative oversight to the state’s prison system, and last year its director was forced to resign under pressure. Today we'll take a look at what this means for the future of Ohio prison oversight with a panel of guests.
