Achievable Ways To Rehabilitate Criminals

By Elsa English
The steady high levels of re-offenses has resulted to radical renovations since almost half the number of freed jailers commit crimes again within a year upon their release. The figures rise greatly to around fifty eight percent for those who serve for terms not exceeding a year. In an aim to rehabilitate criminals, a proposal has been drafted which will see to drops in rates of re-offense. The proposal entails the following.

Plans which are underway in the bid to transform rehabilitation focus on new and streamlined public sector that will be tasked in ensuring the public is safe from dangerous and high risk offenders. The private and voluntary organizations are to work hand in hand on eliminating the cycle of criminal justice system by tackling risk offenders of lower caliber. The first time offenders and those serving for less than a year will be subject to tailored rehab and compulsory supervision once released from prison.

The proposal sets for major use of mentors who are to meet the lawbreakers at prisons gates. They are to be given support in their day to day aspects of their life. Restoring them by giving help in seeking jobs and accommodation, tackling drugs, alcohol and other addictions and checking on their literacy and educational problems is also overseen.

Releasing lawbreakers into the community with only small amounts of money and failing to provide any other kind of support does not help in any way. This makes it not to become a big deal that we have higher levels of freed criminals offending the crimes again. It is therefore insensible to keep on practicing the same old system and still maintain hopes of positive different results.

Awareness on wealth and availability of expertise throughout the public, voluntary and private sectors is well known publicly. This raises the need to unlock these resources as a step to finally begin to tackle the threatening high degrees of recurring offenses. The private and voluntary divisions are set to obtain invitations to bid with respective contracts getting the award which will be based on ideal mode of tackling re-offenses and innovation.

The proposal aims at seeing that everyone who got sentenced into prisons or probation gets punished accordingly in the process of receiving help to turn from wrong doings once and for all. It will also translate to spending money from taxpayers on whichever tasks when it comes down to cutting of crime. The public sector will be expected to retain the ultimate responsibility for protection of the public in all cases.

This new approach is designed to facilitate that private providers are fully paid on condition they are able to achieve in reducing the degrees of re-offenses in designated areas. The agreement is to be grounded on providing payments in accordance with achieved results. This proposal aims at driving forward innovation and effectiveness via systems of criminal justice. A set amount of money is to be provided to communal and voluntary groups to boost them to commence bidding for services.

The above elements in the set proposals have been analyzed and have been deemed fit to help in tackling the rate of re-offense. They are well set in a way that will ensure the ex-convict integrates properly into the society and be on a better position to find a genuine source of livelihood.
