About the WCPRG


The Prison Research Group is a longstanding campus/community organization that is concerned with issues of criminal justice generally, and our nation’s prison system in particular.  We meet approximately once a month over the course of the entire year, and “membership” in the group is informal and fluid.  At many of our meetings, we are privileged to have officials from the Washington State Penitentiary and/or some of the other criminal justice organizations in Walla Walla in attendance.  We routinely tour several correctional institutions in the area – including the Washington State Penitentiary – during the year.
