Description

Overview

The goals of corrections are to punish and protect. When these two functions do not correspond and align, corrections faces goal conflict.

Correctional activities make sense when prisoners are punished fairly. The law provides parameters for fairness line-drawing. Those parameters are not always consistent and have the potential for interpretation in some instances. Conflicts or vagueness between the goals of punishment and protection can cause problems.

Instructions

Suppose you have been tasked with identifying potential action areas in correctional facilities, in your county, to avoid legal problems and to address safety concerns. To gain context and develop your understanding of the task, you will begin by researching conflict throughout the history of corrections. For your assignment, research two sources of conflict throughout history, which are associated with punishment and protection in corrections. Use that research to address the following in a 2–3 page paper, citing a minimum of two academically verified references:

  1. Describe the two conflicts between punishment and protection, based on your research.
  2. Explore the causes of the two conflicts in corrections you have identified.
  3. Lay out two measures that could be taken, looking ahead, to avoid the identified conflicts.

Requirements

  • Written communication: Written communication should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • APA formatting: Resources and citations should be formatted according to current APA style and formatting.
