ScrambleWatch Q&A: Republican Pat Kilburn on Crime

Republican Pat Kilburn is running for House of Representatives in Legislative District 29.  We asked him some questions on crime policy.

Should we increase state funding for prison construction?

No, I think that we should use contract prisons and for non-violent offenders, we should consider options like residing in barracks type environment.

Should we have more contracts with private prisons?

Contract prisons are one of the most efficient and cost-effective methods to house criminals.

Should we spend more on program that provide prisoners with vocational education while they are behind bars?

Yes I believe that by providing them with vocational training , thereby helping them get a job when they get out and possibly require repayment to the state for the training.

Should we look at alternatives to imprisonment for non-violent offenders?

Yes, we should always look for other options or alternatives.
