8: Community Corrections

Learning Objectives

Up to this point, we have spent much time on understanding crime, how it is policed, and how it is prosecuted in the courts. Like the previous one, this section will cover the last third of the justice system, corrections, focusing on punishments that happen in the community. By the end of this section, students should be able to:

  • Understand what is meant by Community Corrections
  • Recognize the different types of Community Corrections
  • Understand the pros/cons of the different main types of Community Correction
