Criminal Justice Trends PaperNameClassDateProfessorCriminal Justice Trends Paper The correctional system developed during the Progressive Era when reformers in society began to recognize the need to make improvements to the correctional system. Before the Progressive Era criminal inmates were housed in the same prison despite their age or their gender. Juveniles over seven years old were housed with adults and women offenders were housed with male offenders. During this era the correctional system built prisons solely for women and a new juvenile justice system emerged was juveniles were now provided with rehabilitative services and juvenile offenders were detained in juvenile detention centers. During this time the focus of the criminal justice system was on rehabilitating criminal offenders, same as juveniles, instead of locking them up in prison and throwing away the key. The criminal inmate was instead provided with more humane living conditions and judges were afforded discretion in the type of prison sentence given to the criminal offender through indiscriminate sentencing guidelines. By the 1920s, the progressive reforms were successful in implementing probation, indeterminate sentencing, parole and juvenile courts (ACA, 2012). The new role of corrections was to assist in the prevention and control of delinquency and crime through the combined effort of the criminal justice system, community, family, and the individual.
