researchers had conducted and gaining a statistical analysis of the researches, a meta-analysis is often one of the best tools to ensure a positive impact on recidivism “meta-analysis is the principal source of information for "effective principles” (Gendreau, 1996, p. 120). Often times these intervention programs are intensive and behavioral based, which are vital to the program. Behavioral Programs, should target the criminogenic needs of the offender, which has better results when it is paired with the offender’s risk level.
“Recidivism “is as to relapse in behavior; typically, in criminal behavior. Department of Justice Measurements of recidivism include new arrest, new convictions, returning to prison with a new sentence or reincarceration for rest of sentence. Astonishingly enough, with in a 5-year period in 2010 ,70% of offenders that were released had been reincarcerated, due to rescinding back to the life of crime.
Miles focuses on the impact of felon disenfranchisement on state‐level voter turnout First, the paper expresses that the number of disenfranchised felons is so large that conventional measures of voter turnout, which fail to correct for the ineligibility of disenfranchised felons, significantly understate the participation rates of African‐American men who would otherwise be eligible to vote Second, the paper demonstrates the triple‐difference backdrop to test whether disenfranchisement actually reduces the turnout of African‐American men
After reviewing Bill Smith 's case file, making a step by step guideline, and completing the Washington State Offender Needs Assessment, I have been able to develop a three month case management plan for him. I will go over four main sections that complete the three month plan. These four sections are the type of counseling modality I will use, the treatment referrals that I will make, a detailed plan for each of the twelve weekly meetings, and a plan for evaluating Smith 's progress. Once this plan is in motion, I 'm confident that Smith will have a good transition into the community.

It is not fair to have mentally ill offenders in prison. But not only is it not fair, it is also not right for them. How is it fair someone who can not control their mind be put in jail? They do not deserve to be in there. They need help, they need someone to show them what is right, they just need someone to be there for help .

Between 1980 and 2014 the number of incarcerated people in the United States quadrupled from 500,000 to approximately 2.3 million. At any given time, the United state incarcerates one percent of its population while another two percent are under extended supervision (Wakefield and Uggen 2010). In addition, the United States has faced a dramatic increase in its homeless and housing insecure population since the 1980s (Herbert, Morenoff, and Harding 2015). Reasons include a decline in affordable housing, foreclosure, poverty, eroding work opportunities, and also laws restricting certain populations from housing. This paper will address past and current challenges related to reentry, recidivism, and housing by analyzing relevant empirical research.
Just as the number of people in prison grows, so too does the number of people leaving prison. Research shows that 95 percent of all prisoners in the United States are released at some point (Katel 2009). The Department of Justice reports that more than 600,000 prisoners are released each year (John Oliver 2015). This means that hundreds of thousands of people reenter society and are expected to have learned from their time behind bars. Unfortunately, most of these people released back into society are not properly prepared. As a result, they end up back in prison.
I enjoyed your paper, it was one of the best in providing informative details about specific need and risks. Also, it was mentioned that probation officers should focus more on the offender that pose the most benefit from interventions and treatment. In fact, after reading your paper it is safe to infer that regardless of the risk factor, both should be highly supervised. In addition, a low-risk offender could face difficulties and challenges that require immediate attention because this offender may not be required to receive interventions and treatment due to their classification. While, On the other hand, a high-risk offender receiving both practices becomes less vulnerable of reoffending.
Rydell Correctional Facility has a public mission statement that encompasses upholding staff safety while providing meaningful opportunities for offender success. Rydell Correctional Facility houses the highest custody level of offenders, officially termed extended restricted housing. Offenders at this custody level have killed or seriously assaulted staff or other offenders and not out of their cell more than an hour a day. The director of prisons for the state department of corrections, Mr. Calhoun, is revising the current extended restricted housing policy based on current trends that it is inhumane. Allowing all offenders the opportunity to be out of their cell for four or more hours
In their study “Incarceration, Addiction and Harm Reduction: Inmates Experience Injecting Drugs in Prison” , Small, Kain, Laliberte, Schechter, O'shaughnessy and Spittal, (2005), examined the HIV risk which associated with intravenous drug use in British Columbia prisons. Small et. al (2005), garnered the information from twenty former male inmates who were recruited from a similar cohort study of injection users in Vancouver, Canada. These inmates had previously used drugs while incarcerated in British Columbia penal institutions. The intent of this study was to validate existing research and to add significant weight to the data that argues for policy change in the prison systems. Moreover to develop a study of types of intravenous drug users in prison who are at high risk for HIV/AIDS
