Assignment 2: Library Research—Corrections Systems and Processes

The state legislature has met and decided that the bulk of the budget cuts will come from the criminal justice system. The head of the Department of Corrections in Centervale, Eric Clayton, has asked you to help him prepare a presentation for the state legislature. This has been a tough budget year, and Clayton must be prepared to explain to the legislature how each dollar is spent on prison programs. Clayton has asked you to research the prison programs offered in two other state prison systems so that he can see how Centervale’s programs compare.

You decide that the best approach is to research the prison system in the state where you reside and explore the programs that are offered.

Why or why not?
