State Agrees: Not In Tacoma's Back Yard

After years of wrangling, the State of Washington apparently now agrees that Pierce County doesn’t really need any new work-release programs for prison inmates.

Corrections leaders released a preliminary list Monday of potential work-release sites that ranked Washington’s 39 counties in order of need. Pierce County was among eight counties classified as “low need”; nine other counties--including Snohomish, which currently has no work-release sites--were classified as “high need.”
