The staff was not comprised of employees who had a lot of experience working in the prison system, so they were not familiar with the types of problems that can and often arises in the corrections department. The prison has a history of employees quitting soon after being hired because they find working in the prison system is not a job they want to perform long term. Finding people who are willing to work in the system for low pay and great hazards is a hard task for the officials of the department of corrections, and staffing issues continue to play a major part in the problems having qualified individuals at the right
Personally, I do not wish to become a probation officer. My goal is to work with troubled youth as a counselor for juveniles. Many times after getting into trouble a juvenile will be turned away by their parents or guardian. As the parent sees the child as a liability instead of a child, the juvenile will often be left out in the street with nowhere to go. In many cases the juvenile will commit more crimes because they have nobody to turn to or look out for them.
After vacationing with his wife, Paul goes to work and jumps right in to a two-sided discussion with his co-worker Sam where they discuss what Sam considers a decent person to be. And Paul, being representative of the due process model expresses concern for those who others consider to be indecent. His ideals are once again challenged with remarks exchanged by Sam and his boss during which they represent the crime control model more by discussing how there should be more police than people and how no one would be able to afford that. The policing power that Sam desires is excessive and would be at the expense of regular citizens. There are also conversations throughout the movie that have a more subtle, symbolic approach to presenting the
Community Corrections also known as probation or parole is the means of supervising felons and misdemeanants outside of a correctional facility. There is a common misconception among the American people that when a person commits a crime, then he or she will be removed from their community or society and put into a correctional facility. Foster Burke (2006). Community corrections can be very beneficial to the individuals who are placed on probation in a sense that it gives the offenders a second chance to redeem what they have done wrong in their communities. Community corrections vary from city to city and state to state.
They were forced to live in intolerable conditions, and tortured mentally and physically by the “guards”. The “guards”, on the other hand, were given uniforms and were instructed to maintain “law and order” in the prison. They were not given strict guidelines as how to keep the peace, and were even encouraged to strategize on their own how to handle situations with the “prisoners”. As time went on, otherwise unassertive subjects that were placed in the “guard” position became more and more aggressive. Prior to the experiment a “guard”, Guard A, wrote in his diary “As I am a pacifist and nonaggressive individual.
Sandra Riggs Prisoners of Parole Jeffery Rosen The article Prisoners of Parole conveyed a lot about a program implemented by a Judge and a Criminal Justice Professor at John Jay College in New York. The program being implemented focused on paroles mostly convicted of drug related offenses. The program was established with the primary focus of keeping paroles from violating their probation by using strict scare tactics, such as random drug testing and many other tactics that I will discuss further in this paper to make them think twice before violating their probation. After reading the article Prisoners of Parole, it never occurred to me that the “United States represents five percent of the world’s population and nearly twenty- five
In this case the judge would be handling this situation out of spit, because he would be ready to leave and not continue his work, which is very unprofessional. Taking kickbacks from private juvenile detention facilities for locking more juveniles up on questionable charges I believe this is unethical, because this is just a simple form of bribery and is very much known in the Criminal Justice field. Taking a kickback for more juveniles would be unethical because it would be ruining young adults lives by locking them up for their own personal gain. Banning one of the defense attorneys in a case from speaking during the trial I believe that this is unethical, because this will cripple the individual who is trying to win a case especially if they are not guilty of the crime that they are being accused of. Suggesting to persons appearing before him to contribute to certain charities in lieu of paying
And prisons don't have the right resources for treatment of all these diseases. They are designed to rehabilitate and release prisoners back to society. Prisoners are required to follow-up with parole officers and receive other types of non-medical support to rejoin society. However, when a mentally ill patient gets released from prison, they are not provided any support groups or counselors to follow-up on their care. This can cause a relapse of the behavior and ultimately, a return to prison.
The correctional system | December 20 2011 | Punishment VS- Rehalbitation what do I think about each of these and which 1 I would choose and which 1 works best. | [Type the document subtitle] | The punishment in our prison system is not a punishment at all the time spent in prison is the punishment. Some of our offenders adjust to prison life, some don’t. I have a nephew actually, was ok when he started his time then as time went on his mind became unstable and had to be put on medication in our system, and makes the offenders go crazy. So there for their punishment, ends up being more into going crazy in the system.
Simply placing juveniles in a prison-like setting and putting the facts of a substance dependence problem on the back burner is obviously not working. With a recidivism rate as high as 35%, jail time alone does not seem to be helping the juvenile drug offender. The program that I am proposing would give the individuals that were incarcerated a place to go after their school day, where constructive activities and counseling will take place, thus removing them from the violence and negativity of the streets, and replacing them with a healthy environment centered around keeping juveniles out of trouble and subsequently, jail. Substance use inevitably leads to reoffending (Chassin 3), and allowing drug offenders who have already been through the system to receive treatment and counseling for their possible drug addiction may decrease the number of individuals who will be brought back into the justice
