Book details


From Preface: "In recent years the Correctional System, indeed the Entire Criminal Justice System - the police, the courts,and corrections, has come under closer scruntiny and subjected to increased criticism and concern over its self-admitted shortcomings. Part of this concern is no doubt due to mass media and the recent coverage of the disturbances at Sing Sing, Rahway, and Attica. However, the real concern clearly emerged in the mid-sixties with the initiation of a Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice. In 1969, the President's increasing concern became apparent and was brought into sharper focus with the issuances of a 13 point Directive calling for the improvement of the Criminal Justice System, with the FederalPrison System to lead the way. We are fully committedto the President's Directive and have taken bold steps to insure the development and constant refinement of a comprehensive correctional model. We trust these steps will be reflected to you in the pages that follow."
