-Both jail and prison are correcting facilities meant to change behavior of individual, prison makes 

- Make criminals  to reduce in doing crimes , it deters them because they can learn from the result of committing a criminal. 

  What would happen if both jail and prison were combined.

Governance and cost

 The government burden  of payment of  two facilities will reduce. This is because the administrators and staff will reduce in number

 Rate of imprisonment. The probability of being sentenced will be high because the process will be simpler ,saves resources , time and administration difficulty.

Congestion. Its obvious that the number of inmates will overcrowd in a one particular locality.

Discipline. It would be difficult to control discipline because of the information of those being jailed on the prison department.

. It will not give a convicted person an opportunity to appeal to cases.
