Karl Jegeris and Kevin Thom

In The Moment ... August 23, 2107 Show 162 Hour 1

How has the way America uses jails changed over the years? What reforms are needed in the future? What reforms are needed urgently? The Safety and Justice Challenge is supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. It's goal is to help communities find ways to reduce over-incarceration. Today we welcome Rapid City Chief of Police Karl Jegeris and Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom.
