Judy Martz: After 100 years, we have enough prison cells, for now

For the first time in a century Montana has enough cells for those who are sentenced to Montana State Prison. For the first time in a long time judges know that if they send a person to MSP their sentence will be served in the place they belong. The Department of Corrections could be called the water heater of the State budget. It is something no one wants to spend money on. Its not something you show off to your friends. And yet, its just plain necessary. Public SAFETY is our most important responsibility. Without it, everything else we try to do in society is jeopardized. In just eight years were nearly caught up in prison space after a hundred years of underfunding. Not bad. We have enough cells. For now. We have more probation and parole officers for more effective supervision. For now. Our Pine Hills juvenile facility will be receiving accreditation/certification for its new sex offender facility. Were well equipped. For now.
