In the United
States today there are more than half a million criminals serving time in
prisons. Most prisoners are male high-school dropouts between the ages of 18
and 29. Even more shocking is the fact that the number and rate of imprisonment
has more than doubled over the past twenty years, and the recidivism – that is,
the rate for rearrest – is more than 60 percent.
Although the stated goal of most prison systems, on both federal and state
levels, is to rehabilitate the inmates and reintegrate them into society, the
systems themselves do not support such a result. Prisons are usually
geographically or psychologically isolated and terribly overcrowded. Even in
the more enlightened prisons, only one-third of the inmates have vocational
training opportunities or work release options.
If prisons are indeed to achieve the goal of rehabilitating offenders, then the
prisons themselves will have to change. First, they will have to be smaller,
housing no more than five hundred prisoners. Second, they will have to be built
in or near population centers with community resources available for gradual
reintegration into society. Finally, prison programs must be restructured to
include work release and vocational and academic training that promises to
carry over into the inmate’s life after release. Models for such collaborative
efforts between the criminal justice system and the community already exist in
several hundred half-way houses throughout the country.
