Do laws and policies in the criminal justice system really reflect what the American public wants? A Penn State professor discusses the reality of the prison system, recidivism rates among offenders, and Megans Law.
By prioritizing supervision, creating incentives for inmates to complete programs that are proven to reduce recidivism, and with the addition of other reforms, Californias prison population is expected to be gradually reduced by about 6,500 inmates over the next year.
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (Contact) in October signed Senate Bill x3 18, authored by Sen. Denise Ducheny (Contact) (D-San Diego), which also adjusts property crimes for inflation and requires CDCR to assess the risk of each parolee. The new law improves the current parole system by allowing parole agents to focus supervision on the more serious offenders, reducing parole agent caseloads, creating a new line of field supervision for field agents including field training officers, and implementing a new outcome-based case planning process that provides incentives for parolee success.
I consider this reform to be a landmark achievement in improving public safety in California, said CDCR Secretary Matthew Cate. This fundamentally changes how we view successful parole supervision from a system that focused mainly on revocation to one that measures both public safety and how well parolees reintegrate into society.
I don’t discriminate who can come to the site or not. BarNoneJobs welcomes sex offenders and any other ex-offender. As far as helping them find jobs, that will be on them to sell themselves.
I'm currently working on a portal barnonejobs.com/content this portal will have a "calculator (of sorts) that will suggest the kinds of jobs people with certain backgrounds are more likely to get..
I'm currently filling the site with content and functionality, but the calculator, I anticipate will be a great tool.
Thanks for plugging my videos on your site, I'll be sure to throw up a link back to your site under our supporters page.
Any other questions, are welcomed!
