Pennsylvania is closing two State Correctional Institutes, including the
one here in Pittsburgh.

You sure thats not just because they are privatizing their prisons
(something I'm dead set against)?

It is because the crime rate is down, contrary to what some say. It is only the one here in Pittsburgh. Somehow, I missed that fact.

Other states are confronting similar reverse-capacity issues. Texas and New York have closed prisons in recent years, and Michigan last year announced the closing of a prison, citing declining inmate populations and budget pressure. A December report from the Pew Charitable Trusts said that, from 2010 to 2015, 35 states reduced their imprisonment rates, led by California.
