The Montana Department of Corrections announced Wednesday it will close by Oct. 9 the Riverside Recovery and Reentry Program, where a trauma-informed rehabilitation program is currently available to incarcerated women, and convert the Riverside Correctional Facility in Boulder to a “special-needs unit” that will serve 21 sick male state prison inmates currently housed in the Lewistown Infirmary.
Just five years ago, the Montana Department of corrections had an average daily population of 8,375 offenders on probation or parole.
