Components of a criminal justice system
Develop a few components of a criminal justice system, focusing most heavily on a prison and reentry program. This will be based in decision-making and concept application from our course. Ultimately, though, your systems are based on your own personal beliefs as related to the material we’ve discussed. I am not looking for any particular right or wrong component, but rather a strong discussion and explanation of the component.
a) As you are in charge of this system and who enters is, what types of measures will you use on the front end (in terms of arrests and convictions)? Why?
b) Once a person has entered your prison, what types of programming is available? Why? [Think about both long-term and shorter-term sentences]
c) If individuals misbehave (what qualifies as misbehaving to you? Why?) in your prison, how will you respond? Why?
d) Many individuals return to society after completing their sentences. How will you work to facilitate a successful reentry (so that recidivism is less likely). Be specific about things you and your prison staff and programming will do and at what stages.
