Many differences exist between prisons, jails, and detention centers; differences also exist between managerial styles in federal, state, local, and private facilities. Compose an essay in which you address the following topics:
- When every inmate reaches a prison with different crimes, backgrounds, and abilities, and different prisons offer distinct treatments, programs, and counseling, how can a state ensure an inmate is incarcerated in a facility with maximum efforts at rehabilitating and reducing recidivism?
- How might social and cultural backgrounds affect the grouping of prison populations?
- How would a decentralized system differ from a centralized system in relation to managing workers in a state-run prison? Which process would be most effective in a private prison?
Your essay must be at least two pages in length. Be sure that you include an introduction in your essay. Include at least two outside sources, one of which may be your textbook. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying APA citations.
* The textbook for this assignment is Allen, J.M., & Sawhney, R. (2019). Administration and Management in Criminal Justice: A service Quality Approach (3rd ed.). You may use the book or outside sources that are reputable or peer-reviewed. I would prefer that one of the sources be the book.
