  1. WEEK 3 ASSIGNMENT – PURPOSE OF CORRECTIONS: PUNISHMENT, OR REHABILITATION?

    OVERVIEW

    To successfully complete this assignment, you will need to:

    According to your textbook, the United States has experienced a corrections explosion over the past 40 years, despite a decrease in serious crime during this same period. Consider statistics such as these. Since 1980, the:

    • Number of people on probation has increased by nearly 300%.
    • Prison population has increased by more than 400%.
    • Federal imprisonment rate has increased 500% (Schmalleger, 2021).

    Even though we are in the midst of a period of mass incarceration in the United States, we know that incarceration doesn’t work. Consider this quote from the video, Psychology, Criminality, and Incarceration in America: “Prisons don’t work. People do not get corrected in today’s prisons. Convicts come out worse than when they went in and are even a greater threat to society than before” (Lary, 2010). The Bureau of Justice Statistics has evidence supporting this sentiment. The 2018 Update on Prisoner Recidivism states an estimated:

    • 68% of released prisoners were arrested within 3 years.
    • 79% within 6 years.
    • 83% within 9 years (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2018).

    This assignment will give you the opportunity to:

    • Explore the U.S. correctional system’s role. Is it to punish those involved? Or is it to rehabilitate them?
    • Consider the correctional system’s current state in terms of punishment or rehabilitation.
    • Analyze specific improvements that appear promising.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    After reviewing the resources provided in the overview, you are to write a 2–3 page paper in which you:

    1. Distinguish among the four functions of corrections: retribution, deterrence, incapacitation, and rehabilitation.
      • Be sure to illustrate the distinctions with current and/or historical examples.
    2. Summarize the arguments for and criticisms of each of the four corrections functions.
    3. Explain the current state of each of the four corrections functions in the United States.
    4. Select a minimum of three corrections improvements included in the Psychology, Criminality, and Incarceration in America video that appear promising and explain why you think so.
    5. Use three sources to support your writing.
      • Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate.
      • Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment.
      • Access the Strayer University Library or review library guides for help with research, writing, and citation.
