As we delve into Corrections in general, I want you scholars to first consider how varied this general label really is! At first thought, we probably think about those imprisoned – and that’s logical. BUT… there are other categories too! Please review this data…and focus on trends. What trends can we identify in category subsets? Research the costs of each category. Which is the more cost-effective mechanism? Which types of offenses would represent danger or risk that would outweigh cost efficacy? There are some great links to which one can pass through this one – and find even more data! Analyze…identify trends, and consider alternatives that may be better than the current approaches!
