Corrections Trend EvaluationAcross the globe, there are a substantive number of correctional centers that house diverse and dynamic inmates People that are mandated to work in these facilities are faced with stringent challenges with respect to maintaining the inmates and consequently the prison facility. The officers are depicted as the front line workers and are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the inmates are well taken care of. This literary study takes a critical focus on the past, present as well as the future trends that are inherent to the development and consequent operation of the community-based operational facilities.
There are quite a number of multivariate trends that correctional centers have incepted in the past that have been prevalent in modern day operations. A good number of people wonder if these trends will be imminent in the future or whether they will be disregarded. To begin with, one particular trend that the institutional community-based corrections has incepted, and further brought forth to the present day, is the lack of rehabilitation services that are an integral aspect to the inmates (Lynch, 2014). Inmates are taken to these correctional facilities due to the crimes that they have committed. Rehabilitation services are imperative to ensure that these crimes are not committed once they are out.
The past, present and future trends that are pertinent to the development and consequent operation of the correctional center is wholly based on corrections. The advent of technology and globalization keep eliciting dynamic changes within the society. As a result, the justice system is more inclined to move towards the inception of treatment orientation. Colloquially, the institutional centers will be inherently improved and prolonged to last long. The conservative trends that were prevalent decades ago keep emanating and dominating the current justice system policy that is in play.
Corrections Operations and Fiscal Demands
A substantive number of countries, as well as cultures, have developed comprehensive official laws to protect their nationals from imminent crimes. Over the years, these laws have been enforceable with the main aim of keeping the communities from becoming anarchies. To this effect, divergent forms of punishment have been incepted to detour the occurrence and prevalence of the same (Dolgoff and Feldstein, 2012). The management and administration of correctional facilities as opposed to the practice of corrections is an integral aspect of correctional administration.
Fiscal demands in a tight economy continue to be an imminent problem that exerts tremendous pressure on correctional facilities that forces them to come up with new techniques to help them perform their set out mission and objectives. These fiscal demands have caused a number of federal governments to downsize on a number of areas inclusive of staff. For example, a few years ago the state of Arizona in the United States was forced to ultimately postpone opening a number of correctional institutions due to staffing issues (Lynch, 2014).
Successively, in other areas fiscal challenges have led to the closure of numerous correctional centers, some of them having been operational for decades, with respect to the seemingly secure assertion that the federal and state governments would intervene and avert the closure of the institutions.
