By VJHamilton, eHow Contributor Print this article What is the Accreditation of Correctional Facilities?thumbnail Accreditation teams view prisons from an insider's perspective. According to Silja J.A. Talvi's Jan. 5, 2007, article in "The Nation," America's prison complex holds over 2 million people who are "locked away without public oversight or scrutiny." While the lack of public or external prison oversight is an issue that has been addressed by families, agencies, and organizations interested in protecting the rights and well-being of the imprisoned, oversight policies and standards have been developed by professionals within the corrections field. Accreditation is one of several processes developed to address the prison oversight issues. Function In her comments to the Commission on Safety and Abuse in America's Prisons, University of Texas professor of public policy Michele Deitch defined "non-judicial prison oversight" in terms of six functions, including accreditation. Deitch suggests accreditation is necessary to prison oversight by contributing to making prison operations, policies, and procedures clear to any interested party, as well increase the accountability of those operating the prisons.

How would you describe prison life? How has prison life changed over time? Should prisoner quality of life be a concern?
Weegy: The practice of detaining accused offenders can be traced to the earliest days of civilization and governments around the globe. [ By contrast, the practice of incarcerating offenders in prisons for the purpose of punishment is a relatively recent phenomenon. As late as the eighteenth century in Europe, the punishment imposed on offenders did not involve imprisonment. Instead, a dual system of punishment meted out vastly different penalties that depended on the offender’s social status and the prevailing economic interests of those inflicting the punishment. For example, members of the nobility found guilty of violating the laws and customs of the realm were either fined or sentenced to forfeit some or all of their land and property. More serious crimes committed by members of this class brought forced labor and banishment, often for life. By contrast, members of the lower classes bore the brunt of the early penal policies, especially if they had offended against the interests of the upper classes. Torture, mutilation, branding, flogging, and execution became their lot. During these early days, punishment was administered in public and was, more often than not, unmatched in its cruelty. Furthermore, the type of punishment inflicted on commoners was more closely related to the prevailing supply and demand of labor than to the nature of the crimes they committed.

Prisons typically classify inmates into at least three groups of maximum, medium and minimum security. [ Prisons determine these classifications based on the type of crime the offender committed, the inmate's criminal history and the offender's behavior while in custody. Prison is seen as artificial and not real life, but prison is a community all on its own. To live in prison one must become a new person inside this artificial life that is prison. The best way to describe prison life is to compare it to virtual reality, where in real life one lives a perfectly normal life, then life a completely new life in prison, one that does not seem real; however, prison life is very real.

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures, such as arbitration and mediation procedures, are increasingly recognized as offering an effective alternative to court litigation for resolving intellectual property disputes. The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center provides ADR services for the resolution of commercial disputes involving intellectual property. Of course, notwithstanding its many advantages, ADR does not offer a complete alternative to court litigation; there are circumstances in which court litigation will be preferable.
