Louisiana is the only state in the nation which houses more than half its prisoners in local jails. Most of these jails are in remote, impoverished areas of the state, far from urban centers, and conditions are often deplorable. The head of corrections in the state calls these jails nothing more than "lock and feed facilities." In a bi-partisan reform effort, the Democratic governor and the Republican-controlled legislature have begun to reform the state's criminal justice system. With FEMA funding they have built a new, modern jail in Plaquemines Parish closer to New Orleans, and have begun transferring inmates there. Many inmates will now be closer to their families and lawyers. State officials are proud of the new jail, though critics say it never should have been built in a flood zone. To what extent are Louisiana's jail reforms really working?
