Dear Corrections1 Member,

As we close the books on 2020, it is time to reflect on the lessons identified during one of the most challenging years for corrections in recent history. From the coronavirus pandemic to the ongoing officer recruitment crisis, this first year of the 2020s put our nation’s jails and prisons to the test.

Our Year-in-Review is a guide not only to the most important events of this year, but also a roadmap for navigating the challenges facing corrections in 2021. What do you think will be the biggest challenge for corrections in 2021? Answer our poll here.

We thank you for your support and wish you all a safe, happy and healthy New Year!
