The cost of putting a prisoner in jail for a year is 38,000 pounds, and the recidivism rate is very high. We often think that it is effective to put prisoners in prison for 12 months and 15 months, but the fact is that once they get out of jail, they tend to commit more crimes. We can continue to bring them back and send them back to prison, but it's not a long-term solution to the problem.
