With no rehabilitative plan in place for these criminals they become more alienated, frustrated, socially and psychologically deprived; which will almost always result in more criminal and antisocial behaviors and a high rate of recidivism (Prison Structure & Management, 2013) Conclusion Correctional leaders and thinkers back in 1870 knew there was a need for reform in the US prison system. They concluded with their own principles of effective intervention that “the supreme arm of prison discipline is the reformation of criminals, not the infliction of vindictive suffering” (Cullen & Grendreau, 2000). This need hasn’t changed in our modern day version of law and justice, and it needs to continue to be the focal point in every judgment made about our prison systems in the United
Santos explains how one of the wardens, in the FCI McKean institution Warden Luther, was there to help those inmates. Warden Luther made it known that this correctional institution and its employees would treat the inmates with “dignity” and the inmates were expected to “act responsibly” (Santos, p. 149). The book describes how the warden posted signs declaring, “Luther’s Belief about the Treatment of Inmates”, which gives rules to staff on how to treat the inmates in a dignified fashion. (Santos, p.148). When you have a warden like Luther, willing to help inmates regardless of their criminal record or status, it gives hope that the prison can be called a correctional facility.
Pelican Bay State Prison: War Zone Marquette Steffke CJA/314 August 27, 2015 Gary Howard Pelican Bay State Prison: War Zone Pelican Bay State Prison is well known for an intriguing reputation. The reputation is withheld through gang leaders whom desire to enter the doors and dominate others while gaining an even better reputation for themselves. The prisoners within Pelican Bay commonly set a goal to gain entrance to this prison because it is more like a reward than a punishment. Gang leaders and members gain more strength and skill upon admission. This prison represents the theory of social structure due to the environment the criminals enter allowing them to continue down a negative path.
Too many people have hurt by this, not only Andrews and Myurans family and friend but our whole world. Firstly Andrew and Myuran had made a drug rehabilitation centre in the prison that has turned a lot of people around and towards a new life. Andrew became a minister who focused on counselling and he became a mentored for his fellow inmates. Myuran became an artist who focused to establish a drug counselling program and he was teaching his fellow inmate’s jobs skills like computer work and graphic designing, for when they get out of prison. Would you kill a man after he has been change?
Facilities should set the guidelines for punishment and make it known across the entire facility, but if a supervisor recognizes the violation, they should handle the punishment, and making human resources aware of a possible violation. Regulations for investigation of possible privacy violations should also be handled by human resources and administration. Overall review of privacy policies, HIPAA regulations, and private regulations should be in serviced frequently to ensure comprehension to the fullest and the repercussions that would
These individuals are given the task of how to move the trial along and what types of sentences should be asked to the judge after the trial has taken place. There are several methods that prosecutors should employ to deal with crimes. One of these methods could be implementing diversion programs for criminals. Again, by placing such a program on the books this would put society more in charge of what is happening to criminals in their communities. Misconduct of Court Room Players In the courtroom, just as outside of the courtroom, there are always times in which misconduct of a courtroom player takes place.
Although there is no way, in any situation, that a subject can be forced to comply with authority, power is always an influential rhetorical device. Despite the fact that a totalitarian regime and the Milgram experiment take place in different settings and contexts, it is easy to see that the

Just like a good university has an accreditation to compare with other universities, prisons have the same standards that the facility and employees must strive to achieve. This accreditation is used to publicize facilities policies, procedure, and operations. The American Correctional Association (ACA) is an organization that verifies the national standards by use of audits, reviews, hearings, and evaluations (Standards and accreditation, 2012). For institutions to raise the standard of professionalization, the training process becomes longer and harder for employees. To become a professional, the employees must have extensive training and certifications to work at different levels of the prison.
Judges, officers, agents, lawyers and correctional staff have to make decisions about how to proceed with the detainment and punishment of criminals. Correctional officers must have character and exemplify good ethical conduct. These professionals must take their jobs serious and never betray their oath in office, their public trust, or their badge (Peak, 2010). Character and ethics are qualities that constitute the foundation of their occupation and will certainly affect the manner in which they carry out their public-safety duties. Correctional officers play an influential role in the lives of many inmates because of their direct and prolonged interaction.
