Perhaps the most complex challenge of congregate population management, this topic links the public health implications of jail density with the public safety implications of de-densification of jails and other alternatives to incarceration. The safe and healthy management of jail populations during a disaster is another focus of this important inquiry. Alternative uses of depopulated jail facilities is one of many emerging options to address the larger issue of congregate care systems. In this webinar, panelists will examine these questions and many more as they consider what jails will – or should – look like during and after COVID-19.
