Correctional population

1-In your opinion, which one particular criminal offense has contributed most to the growth in correctional population and how can it be effectively addressed?

2-In chapter 02, the authors discuss 5 different goals of corrections/punishment (Deterrence, Retribution, Rehabilitation, Restoration, and Incapacitation), in your opinion, which is the most effective in reducing overall recidivism? Explain.

3-As a policymaker, how would you convince your constituents that we need to rely less on jails and invest more in other resources (focused on rehabilitation) for the “special needs populations” (i.e., mentally ill, drug addicts)?
