Question and answer
How would you differentiate male and female prisoner backgrounds? Is there a better solution to prisoner background classification? Explain.
NIC, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD), and ICJC worked with eight states over a 7-year period to develop, pilot-test, implement, and evaluate internal prison classification systems. Seven unique models were tested. [ Florida, Connecticut, and Colorado developed computerized objective, behavior-based models for housing and program assignments. Oregon developed an
objective model based on behavioral and compatibility indicators for its female population, although preliminary results suggest that the system works equally well for its male population. New Jersey developed a behavior-based model for identifying the aggression levels of its maximum-custody inmates. Washington state analyzed the utility of the Adult Internal Management System (AIMS) for case management of minimum-custody inmates with long sentences. South Dakota and Missouri developed a personality-based system, the Adult Internal Classification System (AICS), modeled after AIMS. ]

how does corrections accreditation affect the professional development of corrections officers?
Weegy: Facilities that undertake the challenge of seeking accreditation reap many benefits, especially when they ultimately achieve accreditation. [ Staff training and development are mandated under the standards and usually far exceed training requirements in place in unaccredited facilities. Preparation for an accreditation audit requires a comprehensive internal review of institutional programs and services, followed by an objective assessment by the ACA auditing team. This process often reveals the need for improvement in some programs and services, while identifying those that work well. Medical services, food service, access to courts, and "quality of life issues" (such as the extent of institutional violence, the fairness disciplinary and grievance procedures , and overall quality of life for staff and offenders are key considerations. The process also helps to identify the need for operational improvements and provides clear criteria for measuring progress. Often, such intensive scrutiny of a correctional facility results in a safer environment for staff and offenders. And as correctional officers work toward compliance with standards that represent the profession's best practices, staff take increasing pride in their work and their professionalism. There are other benefits to accreditation that are more easily quantified. For instance, accredited facilities often enjoy reduced premiums on liability insurance premiums which can offset the costs of accreditation. And accreditation also helps to demonstrate not only a facility's compliance with professional standards, but a commitment to proactively meet the needs of prisoners. ] (More)

How would you define prison violence? How does violence influence prison management strategies and administration issues? What recommendations might you make to address increasing violence and the various forms of violence in state and federal prisons?
Weegy: Every year, more than 13 million people enter U.S. [ prisons and jails, and 95 percent of them will eventually be released -- sometimes angrier and more violent than they were when they were incarcerated. Making prisons safer isn't just a matter of simple humanity, it's a matter of public safety, prison officials and state and federal authorities say. Congress will hold a hearing Thursday on prison violence and abuse. A congressional panel will hear from prison reformers -- both liberal and conservative -- who cite a new report from the National Prison Commission that contends "what happens inside jails and prisons does not stay inside jails and prisons."

How is academic failure related to delinquency? Do delinquents fail at school or is academic failure responsible for delinquency? Explain your answers.
Weegy: School failure is related to delinquency in many different ways. One way comes through incompetent parents and administrators. [ When a child is more afraid of a gang than he is afraid of the consequences of not doing his homework or even going to school, he will fail. His failure is not due to his own delinquency but to that of other children. The solution would be for his parents to raise hell with the school board and have the incompetent administrator replaced for not making the way safe to school. If the school board refused to act, have the parent see a lawyer. An incompetent parent fails to act. Then there is the delinquent kid who refuses to do his own work. Poor academic performance for some children may lead to low self-esteem which may lead to truancy and dropping out of school. This, in turn, may lead to the formation of a gang to regain a sense of self-esteem. 2. Some neighborhood schools are failing in their effort to educate and socialize students which may result in a child's rejection of school and the formation of a gang as a mechanism for filling time, acting out against the school, acquiring skills needed to make money, and building self-esteem. 3. School failure and delinquency are the result of another issue - problem behavior syndrome (low IQ - Intelligence Quotient, turbulent family life, low self-control and impulsivity, drug use, depression, malnutrition, abuse, and disease). (Siegel and Senna, 1997, p. 365, italics added for clarity) Gangs may form when children with this syndrome are brought together or seek one another out as a support group. ] (More)
