Propose adjustments to the two distinctions, focusing on recidivism prevention.

Women and Juveniles in Jail

While many issues in corrections affect both men and women, there are policy issues that pertain exclusively or particularly to the incarceration of women. There are several differences between male and female institutions. There are also several differences in characteristics between male and female offenders. Subcultures differ as well. These distinctions translate to different challenges for corrections. Special issues are faced by women behind bars that are connected, in part, to these various distinctions. Special issue areas include sexual misconduct, education and vocation programs, medical services, and mothers and their children.

Suppose you are a warden of a medium-security women’s prison, planning for the upcoming fiscal year. You have been tasked with prioritizing how special issues for women behind bars should be addressed.

In 250-300 words answer the following:

  • Lay out the two special issues you would prioritize for women in your facility.
  • Specify two programs you propose implementing to address the identified special issues.
  • Figure out what would be needed to implement the two programs in your facility.
  • Explore the possible implications of program implementation.

PART 2

There is a perception that juveniles are less formed, more susceptible to reform, less culpable, more amenable to reform, more vulnerable to succumbing to peer pressure, more likely to desist from criminal activity, and less likely to understand responsibility than adults. Because of many of these perceptions, juvenile policies tend to be directed toward helping young people, with an emphasis on reform. This often translates to less criminal culpability. This is apparent throughout the system, starting with the terminology and steps in the system, punishment philosophies, and facility distinctions.

Recently, we have seen a shift in the approach toward juvenile offenders. In this discussion, the potential for a direction shift will be explored.

In 250-300 words answer the following:

  • Break down two distinctions between adults and juveniles that impact corrections.
  • Analyze two potential implications of the distinctions that are specific to corrections.
  • Propose adjustments to the two distinctions, focusing on recidivism prevention.
  • Predict two implications of the proposed adjustments to the juvenile, society, and corrections.
