- Spotlights the hot topic of careers in corrections with several unique real-world features: “Voices Across the Profession” boxes in every chapter which include interviews of working professionals; “Careers in Corrections” boxes which highlight various career opportunities, the background required to pursue them, potential earnings, benefits, and even future job outlook; and end-of-chapter “Thinking Like a Corrections Professional” critical thinking activities that challenge students to problem solve about dilemmas they are likely to face on the job.
- Unique “TechnoCorrections” boxes spotlight the use of cutting-edge technology to supervise offenders in the community and in correctional institutions – everything from GPS monitoring to biometrics to registering sex offenders on the Internet and more.
- “Correctional Life” inserts give students a firsthand glimpse of what it is like to do time at prisons of the past or the present. The settings examined include the historic Eastern State Penitentiary as well as today’s supermax prisons, a life sentence, and even a death row experience. Also featured are an average day in the life of a probation officer as well as well as the challenge of an inmate preparing his or her case for appeal.
- Provocative “Myth/Fact” boxes present popular myths (i.e., “prison rehabilitation efforts are a failure”) followed by a fact that has been supported by research in the field and are sure to generate lively discussion and debate in the classroom.
CORRECTIONS TODAY offers the most practical, engaging, career-focused, and authoritative introduction to corrections available. It is a briefer, more visual, paperback alternative to expensive hardback Introduction to Corrections texts. Perfect for those who have grown tired of encyclopedic texts that are lacking in real-world concepts and application, it examines the field of corrections through the lens of students who are giving serious thought to a career in the field or are now working in corrections but seeking an advanced degree in order to obtain promotion and/or switch job paths.
