Which prison inmates get the most visitors? A look at felons in Florida

By Denise-Marie Ordway

Younger prisoners receive more visitors than older ones. Meanwhile, white and Latino inmates get more visits from family and friends than do black inmates, a new study finds.

The issue:  Part of the national debate about prison reform centers on inmate rehabilitation and recidivism – whether today’s prison programs succeed in correcting offenders’ behavior and preventing them from committing more crime. One factor that appears to influence people’s behavior while they are behind bars as well as recidivism rates is whether they receive visits from family members and others during incarceration.

Several published studies suggest prison visits help inmates maintain social ties, which, in turn, may reduce the likelihood they will commit crimes after their release. A 2016 review of studies finds that in-person visits reduce the likelihood of recidivism by 25 percent and that conjugal and furlough visits, which let inmates spend extended periods of time with family, have an even bigger impact.

Are they not your people?  >:(
