Book Description :

Making Good — one of the classic and original works on restorative justice — argues that the real need in restorative justice is for fundamental rethinking, rather than short-term tinkering, with a prison system in an intolerable state of crisis. In this second edition — which also includes a new foreword by one of the UK's leading penal reformers — author Martin Wright demonstrates that neither the conservative idea of deterrence through punishment nor the liberal ideal of rehabilitation has worked in practice. In their place, he proposes the basis for a radical but carefully worked out practical philosophy, which would place the emphasis on the offender making amends to the victim, and society for the damage caused. ò

Book Description :

More than 2 million adults are incarcerated in U.S. prisons, and each year more than 700,000 leave federal and state prisons and return to communities. Unfortunately, within three years, 40 percent will be reincarcerated. One reason for this is that ex-offenders lack the knowledge, training, and skills to support a successful return to communities. Trying to reduce such high recidivism rates is partly why states devote resources to educating and training individuals in prison. This raises the question ofhow effective -- and cost-effective -- correctional education is: an even more salient question given the funding environment states face from the 2008 recession and its continuing aftermath. With funding from the Second Chance Act of 2007, the Bureau ofJustice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, asked RAND to help answer this question as part of a comprehensive examination of the current state of correctional education for incarcerated adults and juveniles. The RAND team conducted a systematic review of correctional education programs for incarcerated adults and juveniles. This included a meta-analysis on correctional education's effects on recidivism and postrelease employment outcomes for incarcerated adults, as well as a synthesis of evidence onprograms for juveniles. The study also included a nationwide survey of state correctional education directors to understand how correctional education is provided today and the recession's impact. The authors also compared the direct costs of correctional education with those of reincarceration to put the recidivism findings into a broader context.

Book Description :

This is the best leading edge information and ideas from two of the UK's most respected practitioners and authorties. It is for people who want to make a difference, suggests the tools for this and offering guidance - wholly up to speed with what is happening in UK prisons. Restorative Justice in Prisons is an entirely new and key work that explains how restorative justice can be delivered in the prison setting. This book translates well-rehearsed theories of restorative justice into practical outcomes and into a scenario that is primarily punishment-oriented. It offers a new perspective on the needs of victims in a context where offending may be quite serious. Restorative Justice in Prisons opens the way for largescale expansion in this field. 'This is a wonderfully useful tool for influencing policymakers towards a better system. Meticulously researched and rationally argued throughout, the authors speak direct to government, police and prison service on their own terms, neatly arguing that all those institutions will achieve their objectives, if they adopt the restorative approach .... This is a practical handbook, written by professionals ... [with] a wonderfully reflective Foreword by Erwin James, a lifer, that will capture the imagination .... There are wonderful insights in this book as we would expect from two professionals who have devoted so much of their lives to work in our prisons. The small gestures of human feeling that pass betwen officers and inmates; the detailed case studies of violence; the experience of Belgian prisons; the damaging side effects of imprisonment and most impressively the list of prisons that have moved towards the restorative model. But it is the authors' unerring grasp of current police, prison and government cultures and their confidence that these can be moved gently towards restorative justice, that makes this book so significant for prison reform': John Myhill JP, extracts from a review in The Magistrate, January 2007.

Book Description :

In the early 1990s, professionals began to question how to address offender computer use while on supervision, but in the past ten years, tools emerged that were specifically developed for triage and field forensics. As these were rapidly embraced, it was still unclear what professionals could look for, how to look for it, and how to interpret what they found. This unique book resolves those issues. The book provides a clear outline of what can and should be done regarding the management of offender computer use. Not only does the text help community corrections professionals understand how to monitor computer use, but it helps realize how information gained during monitoring can assist in overall case management. The book takes the reader through all the paces of managing offender cyber-risk and is meant specifically for pretrial, probation, parole, and community sanction officers. The chapters are organized by major areas, such as community corrections and cyberspace, understanding the options, condition legality, operational legality, accessing cyber-risk, computer education, principles of effective computer monitoring, search and seizure, deploying monitoring software, and online investigations. Additionally, numerous appendices provide a wealth of information regarding model forms, questionnaires, and worksheets. This book moves the reader toward a more informed use of the technology that is now readily available to effectively manage offenders’ digital behavior.

Book Description :

In 1984 Colin Thatcher was convicted of killing his ex-wife and sentenced to life in prison. The murder and trial provoked a national media frenzy, casting the once-prominent Saskatchewan politician as the villain. After serving for 22 years, Thatcher was released and finally able to offer his own account of what happened from the time of the murder up until he left prison. Though firmly proclaiming his innocence from the start, he is now able to go behind the bureaucratic red tape and provide full disclosure, including evidence not seen at the trial, legal documents, and personal correspondence, ultimately questioning the public?s faith in local law enforcement, mainstream media, and justice in Canada.
