Abstract

In examining what role privatization should serve in California criminal justice reform, this article approaches privatization as a structural tool for systemic improvement, rather than simply a way to replicate existing structures more cheaply. In addition to making several policy suggestions, the article identifies the most significant aspects of the California criminal justice system upon which privatization would bear.
