Description

This series revealed how a costly state-funded program for dangerous developmentally disabled adults called the Community Protection Program is putting its own clients at risk of abuse and neglect in the name of protecting the public. The state is paying private residential companies to provide 24-hour supervision of 381 clients at an average annual cost of $93,000 per person while providing little oversight of how public dollars are spent.
