Robber Barons People who have been considered “Captains of Industry” have also been given the title “Robber Barons”. Is there really a difference in the two? While Robber Barons have been known to take as many resources as they can from an area they are also known for giving little to those who help them become rich. Often times they come in with flowing promises of better homes and cleaner cities to entice workers to live there. However, many workers find that does not happen.
However new right theorists favour this sector as it saves moms for the state as they are hostile to state expenditure. The voluntary sector consists of organisations, usually charities which provide welfare and are set up to deal with social problems such as old age, poverty, homelessness or child abuse. Advantages of the voluntary sector are that it employs trained staff as well as volunteers, it is professionally organised, it reduces dependence on state funding as the sector's income does not come primarily from the state. One problem with the voluntary sector is that it's funding is not always guaranteed so it cannot always provide continuity of service. Market liberals support this type of provision because it reduces reliance on state funding and encourages individual responsibility and community
Santos knew that getting involved into cocaine distribution was a highly risky endeavor, but he still pursued the “easy” money. There are probably many inmates in the correctional systems able to turn their lives in a positive direction, but because of the limited resources available, their hopes of accomplishing this goal become impossible. Some of the wardens in the
Corrections Accreditation and Privatization Noel Pennington CJS/230 March 30, 2014 Gloria Ramsey Corrections Accreditation and Privatization When you talk about correctional accreditation and professionalization you are talking about the standards that have been developed for the prisons and its personnel. The accretion allows for the prisons to compare their progress with other prisons, and this comparison can be used to help them mend problem areas. Accreditation and professionalization go hand in hand because one part of accreditation has to do with the proper training and conduct of the staff. Other parts of accreditation have to do with making sure that everything is ran in the correct manner and that all the necessary needs are
I do believe we should not coddle them with taxpayer treatment programs that a lot of them enter and exit repeatedly. But, on the other hand, if those treatment centers do offer some sort of success, then it a good thing to offer them in hopes of the offenders not depending on drugs and having to commit crimes to get those drugs thus reducing crime, the courts, jails, and prison population. Drug treatment programs are less expensive than prisons and more effective at helping people turn their lives around. Many of the programs available to inmates are provided by organizations like AA and NA, which send volunteers into the prisons. Most of the volunteers are previous offenders who have changed their lives and now want to help other change their life.
The correctional administrators and health directors need to be informed/able to meet the complicated needs of inmates with mental health disorders. Amongst the staff should have the knowledge for screening and assessment, case management, psychopharmacology, and suicide prevention services, and discuss as well as find methods for effectively organizing and managing in-prison mental health services. There should be physical facilities, staff, staff training, or clinical resources to meet the needs of
"Charity towards criminals was much more acceptable and much more common in the Middle Ages. "Many people left bequests to help prisoners in their wills, for example." Town officials looking for good press would also leave baskets of food or ale for the jailed. Medieval authorities were lacking the funds to construct and upkeep jail systems as we know them today. In special cases when long-term incarceration was required, or to hold a prisoner awaiting trial, castle dungeons would have been used, according to the National Archives.
Roles of Corrections Officers Angela Primiano CRJ 303 Corrections Instructor: Jonathan Sperling June 6, 2013 A correctional officer is responsible for the safety and security of prisoners as well as the supervision in the prison or jail. Correctional Officers are responsible for the safety and security of the facility the same as the prisoners. Accomplishing this is not an easy task as they must maintain order by enforcing rules and regulations. It is important for the correctional officer to provide custodial care necessary for the well-being and security of inmates incarcerated in the prison or jail. A correctional officer has many duties as they have to processing new inmates, supervising inmate visitation, prepare inmates to be transported to court appearances, distributing food to inmates, handling control room operations, and reviewing and verifying inmates trust fund accounts, assisting victim’s advocates, conducting security checks and overseeing the inmates sentence calculation and releases by reviewing court commitments.
The likelihood of a prisoners return to the prison system depends on his/her ability to prosper outside of prison, research by the Federal Bureau of Prisons shows that education programs increased a former inmates chances for success in the work force; “ex-prisoners who participated in employment and vocational education programs in prison had a better chance of maintaining employment and earning slightly more money than similar ex-prisoners who had not participated” (Vacca 2004). In 1991 researcher David Clark proved that education during incarceration causes an inmate’s recidivism rates to decrease significantly, making them less likely to return to prison after being released. Clark studied twenty-one different prison education programs and determined that only 26.4% of
