As the ongoing crisis on Rikers Island continues, calls for the closure of the jail complex continue to grow. Mayor Bill de Blasio has already backed a plan to close the facility by 2026, but he will be out of office long before that happens, leaving the next mayor to figure out the best way to approach the closure of the jail complex. 

Michael Jacobson, the Executive Director of CUNY's Institute for State and Local Governance, co-authored a report which outlines steps the next mayor could take to close Rikers Island. Jacobson, who was also the City's correction commissioner from 1995-1998, joined political anchor Errol Louis on "Inside City Hall" Thursday night to talk about the report and the ongoing issues at Rikers.
