Texas should turn its focus more toward crime prevention

David Dow, a Houston attorney and founder of Texas Innocence Network, said in a TED Talk that for every $15,000 the nation spends on "intervening in the lives of economically and otherwise disadvantaged kids... we save $80,000 in crime-related costs down the road." Additionally, according to a report from Alliance for Excellent Education in 2013, the U.S. could save up to $18.5 billion in annual crime costs if the high school male graduation rate increased by 5 percent. In 2012, this rate was 77 percent, and females' was 84 percent. Focusing on prevention is more practical than waiting until people at risk of becoming criminals commit their first crimes.
