Question description

Go to the Department of Corrections’ Website for your state, and research two (2) of your state’s correctional facilities. Next, use the Internet and Strayer Library to research the budgetary constraints that correctional officials must adhere to in order to operate correctional facilities.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Determine whether diversion programs are only beneficial to offenders charged with misdemeanors and non-violent felonies or whether they are also beneficial to offenders charged with felonies and violent crimes. Recommend whether or not the two (2) correctional facilities that you researched would benefit from diversion programs. Provide a rationale for your response.
  2. Take a position as to whether or not privatized correctional facilities are better alternatives to public correctional facilities. Support your position with one (1) successful example what you believe to be the better alternative.
  3. Examine the budgetary constraints that correctional officials work with as they operate correctional facilities. Determine the major trade-offs made between the policy for proper funding and the practice of proper funding to prevent recidivism. Provide a rationale for your response.
