JAIL POPULATION RISES

While big-city jails get most of the attention, lockups in small and medium-sized counties have actually driven the overall explosion in the U.S. inmate population, according to a new analysis of 45 years of jail statistics.

U.S. jails now hold nearly 700,000 inmates on any given day, up from 157,000 in 1970, as reported by the Peoria Journal Star & the Associated Press.
