Student Name: Professor: Subject: Date: Correction Programs for Juvenile Offenders Introduction As a society we all admire to have a prosperous neighborhood and a safe community. In order to achieve this the justice juvenile systems need to be exclusively redesigned. Currently if asked to describe the juvenile system in our country one can describe it simply as a maze- no definite way in and out. Without consideration to the manner in which they got themselves into the juvenile justice systems many youth today find themselves on a path that directs them to secure custody without a definite way of moving out. It is not a lie to say that there are certain routes that can be made available- addiction services mental health or generally services that will help these youth mature into adulthood (Greenwood 196). For a long time now research being conducted by various players has and other community based supports that are crucial to their success in future (Patricia & John 624). Various jurisdictions and states all across the country are struggling with the problem of budgeting. And one avenue for policymakers to exploit is to cut significantly the spending on youth incarceration and invest more on supervision programs that are community based. These programs are not only effective in the improvement of public safety but also in the reduction of expenses incurred as a result of confinement. Works Cited Chamberlain Patricia and John B.
