15 Apr The Cost of Keeping a Person in Jail
Can you guess how much it costs to keep a person in a California prison?
That’s $64,000 per person. Yes people!
This cost covers housing, meals, and caring for the prisoner’s basic needs. Although California prison populations are slowly declining while still being overcrowded, the costs aren’t going down. In fact, they’re on the incline.
California spends $1 billion each year to accommodate California jails, where people are serving short-term sentences and are awaiting their trial.
These numbers are kind of “jaw-dropping’, aren’t they? This is where some of your tax money comes into play, and it’s not a nice thought.
However, your loved one who might’ve been recently arrested doesn’t necessarily need to be sitting in jail, waiting for their trial. Instead of spending your tax dollars on their jail time, help pay for them to get out of jail with a bail bond from Encino Bail Bond Store!
