Probation is carried out by the traditional criminal justice system and parole by the correctional system. While on probation many people are at home or with a family member unsupervised. On parole many individuals are made to go to halfway houses and other forms of rehabilitation. As a probation officer one ensures that adult or juvenile offenders meet conditions stipulated by the court to avoid jail time. To become a probation officer you have to have at least a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice or social work.
In the article, methods that were used to conduct this research were self-reports from inmates as well as interviews of former inmates. Surveys were also conducted and given to those incarcerated as well as those released from prison. Prisoners were allowed to participate in a program titled “Long-Distance Dads” which encouraged responsible fatherhood during and after incarceration. Special attention was paid to inmates who participated in religious services and other programs such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous as well. The research results showed that those who reported support from family and loved ones, via visits and letters while incarcerated as well as emotional and financial support upon release, helped make re-integration a bit easier.
While, if they were able to be released back into the community they could have actually been rehabilitated. This not only happens to juveniles this also can happen to the smaller weaker adults. While, the hardest question that the judge has to ask him/herself is “Is this offender fit to be put back into society or just put into prison/jail”, which can deter a possible offender from being released to probation to be sent to prison or jail. The possibilities of rehabilitating these offenders are very high if they can be placed into the right type of correctional program. In community based corrections there are many different types that can be offered.
Lots of adolescents don’t have the family support to let them know that there is a better life outside of their community. With hard work and dedication anything is possible. The duties of being a juvenile probation officer are to supervise the offenders after they have been released from jail or have been set to probation after receiving a ticket. To supervise is to be responsible for the juveniles so they stay on the right track and do not commit the same crime. As a probation officer one must meet on a regular basis with the juvenile and their family to talk about the problems the adolescent is having and try to find a solution to fix the problem.
Teaching in a Failing Middle School, Analysis In the article, Voices Inside Schools—Newjack: Teaching in a Failing Middle School, Sipe (2004) compared his experience as a middle school teacher to that of a corrections officer. Sipe (2004) asserted that the prison-like structure and institutional feel of the school played a role in the behavior of the students and teachers. Connover (as cited in Sipe, 2004), described the importance of control, for a corrections officer, in assuming authority and respect in a correctional facility. Also, Cononover (as cited in Sipe, 2004) observed that the prison was divided into two adversarial sides of ‘us’ and ‘them’. Although initially disturbed that the student-teacher relationship mirrored that of corrections officers and prisoners, Sipe (2004) seemed to accept this type of interaction as necessary to maintain authority.

Community Corrections By: Tirria Carter 4/21/13 CJS/230 Lisa Nash “Abstract” Community corrections are alternatives to help offenders in making a change from prison to the community as they move toward the end of their sentence. In 1965, Congress passed The Federal Prisoner Rehabilitation Act, providing several options; work release, furloughs, and community treatment centers, to help in reintegration. In 1913, work release was first authorized at state level. Wisconsin act allowed misdemeanor criminals to work at outside jobs while they spent nights in jail. Work release is not only an alternative for the offenders to get back in tune with society, and make money; it also benefits society through taxes, welfare savings, and offenders bearing the costs of their incarceration while living in work release facilities.
Of course the population I would be focusing on is the prison officers and the people who works in these prisons. The sampling plan is stratified of this case study. I chose to used the quantitative approach it terms of the method. Some people gets into this occupation and don’t know what they getting themselves into. Different individuals have different ways dealing with the stress that is put on them.
The word rehabilitation can offer many different meanings. The general meaning of rehabilitation is to make someone better or return them to their previous condition. However, in terms of prisoners, rehabilitation means to reform an individual from a criminal to a law abiding citizen. “Rehabilitation is often thought of in a more narrow definition today—as specific programs applied within the prison setting (or outside) intended to bring about the end of criminal behavior, called desistance, meaning to cease or stop” (Foster, 2006, p. 372). This reformation would be sought through an assortment of programs offering educational and vocational classes, counseling and therapy, and teaching life and social skills.
