Achievable Ways To Rehabilitate Criminals

By Elsa English

The consistent higher levels of re-offending have led to a radical renovation as almost half the total number of ex-convicts re offends in less than a year on their release. The figure is higher at about fifty eight percent in those that serve for terms of less than one year. The drafted new proposal is established to rehabilitate criminals so as to see a drop in re-offenses rates. The following is what is entailed in it.

Underway plans set to transform rehabilitation looks into new and restructured public sector which is to get tasked in making sure the public is protected from offenders that are dangerous and high risk. Both private and voluntary groups will be required to work together to eliminate the revolving criminal justice system through engaging low caliber offenders. First time offenders and the ones serving for period shorter than a year are to get subjected to mandatory supervision and rehab upon getting released from prisons.

Mentors are provided by the proposal and they will be tasked to meet with the wrongdoers once they are released. The ex-convicts are to be given required support in ensuring their daily aspects of life run smoothly. Some of the kind of help given to them include, restoring them by providing aid in job seeking and shelter, overcoming alcohol, drugs and intoxicants including monitoring of literacy problems.

Releasing offenders into the society with only a minute amount of cash and with no available support helps in no way. It is not a big deal that we get increased higher level of released criminals re-offending the crimes. It therefore makes no sense to continue with the exact old system and yet keep hoping for positive different results.

We are well aware of the existence of expertise and wealth across the private, public and voluntary sectors. We are supposed to unlock this potential so that we can in the long run commence to tackle down the stubbornly high rates of re-offending. The private and voluntary sectors will get invitation to bid with each contract being awarded based on innovation and best value in tackling re-offending.

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.

The new approach is set to ensure that private providers get full payments on conditions that they get able to cut down the rates of re-offenses in their areas. The contract is to be based on payments as per the results. The proposals are directed toward driving progressive innovation and efficiency via criminal justice systems. Some amount of cash is set to be given to both voluntary and communal groups as a way of boosting them to begin bidding for services.

The elements above from the proposal have been scrutinized and found to be effective in the fight against crime. They have been well drafted to ensure that the prison leavers integrate well into the society and get a good livelihood in an honest way.
