Abstract:

This paper attempts to show the legislative policymakers that their action is desperately needed in order to guide and regulate a new facet of the correctional system. Many programs that have been deemed unsuccessful in the criminal justice system have fallen by the wayside before it was really known if they offered benefits due mainly to the way they were instituted or controlled and not because of the quality of the program itself. Privatization in the correctional system is in danger of suffering this same fate if it is allowed to continue in a disorganized and uncontrolled manner. The information offered in this paper is provided with the hope that policy makers will recognize the complexity of the privatization issue and move to explore the situations discussed in this paper further in order to educate themselves and then act to establish the necessary policy umbrella.
