Corrections in the 21st Century provides an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of corrections while also identifying the many subcomponents of modern-day corrections. It highlights the process of modern-day corrections and focuses on the issues facing the correctional enterprise today. This title provides an appreciation for contemporary real-world correctional practice, examines the opportunities represented by new and developing corrections technologies and points the students in the direction of the still emerging ideal of corrections professionalism. The text’s dual theme emphasizes professionalism and evidence-based corrections. Corrections professionalism, although not yet as well-known as police professionalism, has garnered support from policymakers and is winning respect among the public. It serves as this textbook’s organizing principle.
