Jail and Prisons Comparison Paper Cara Brown CJA/234 June 13h, 2013 University of Phoenix Jordan Williams Jails and Prisons are often used interchangeably. In fact, many believe that these the two meanings are the same. Even though it is true that the policy behind the establishment of jails and prisons are the same, which is to punish, correct and rehabilitate criminal offenders, the two meanings provide for different aspects in achieving the policy. Both jails and prisons components are under the criminal justice system which is called corrections. The corrections are the component of the criminal justice system which is in charge of the supervision of individuals within the criminal justice system, i.e., suspects and convicted offenders.
Reentry is the process of someone who has been incarcerated returning to the community. They may have fulfilled their obligation served their entire sentence or they may be in the process of completing their sentence while on parole or probation. Reentry involves the use of programs targeted at promoting the effective reintegration of offenders back to communities upon release from prison and jail. Reentry programming, which often involves a comprehensive case management approach, is intended to assist offenders in acquiring the life skills needed to succeed in the community and become law-abiding citizens. A variety of programs are used to assist offenders in the reentry process, including prerelease programs, drug rehabilitation and vocational training, and work programs.

He or she is responsible for ensuring the court proceedings are legal, and that the defendant receives his or her rights to due process of law. The judge does this by setting the rules of the courtroom and acting as a referee between opposing council. Although a judges’ most visible role is during a criminal or civil trial, he or she has many responsibilities. Prior to any court hearing, the judge is responsible for signing search and arrest warrants. Judges also deal with the issue of bail once established that there is enough evidence to hold a criminal trial against the defendant during the preliminary hearing.
Parole conditions imposed determine the amount of freedom versus restrictions a parolee has. The main goal of parole is societal protection, which is accomplished by enforcing parolee restrictions and providing services that assist in community reintegration while at the same time maintaining public confidence in parole (Williams, McShane, and Dolny 2000a). Whatever may be the primary goal behind parole release, conditions imposed play a big role in achievement and often determine whether the parolee succeeds or fails. Prisoner Perspectives on Getting Out Few studies have examined the prisoner’s perspective while on parole. Most researchers conduct studies about inmate life experiences inside prison, primarily because institutional prisoners make captive audiences.
