Future Directions of Corrections
With the increasing number of incarceration, it is critical to strategize mechanisms that
would be accommodative to the many offenders in the United States. The best alternatives to the
corrections systems would be intermediate punishments programs that involve the
implementation of choices such as electronic monitoring, fines, and shock incarceration (Center
for Community Corrections, 2009). The usage of these options would offer an alternative to
parole and probation though they are accompanied by a lack of data to support relevance.
Shock incarceration involves subjecting an offender to short periods of imprisonment.
The best example of these strategies involves the usage of boot camps that are comparable to
military camping because the criminal is kept at the boot camp for a period ranging three to six
months. The effectiveness of these programs is comparable and equal to the traditional options
concerning its success rate (Pearson Education, 2010).
The other available option is the use of fines as an alternative to imprisonment where
there exist fines that are instituted to be paid in installments. This method is, however, structured
to be accompanied by a monitoring component to ensure that there is adherence to the protocol.
Studies on the success rate of this alternative remain scarcely established (Pearson Education,
2010).
The usage of electronic monitoring is a strategy in which the officer to monitor the
location of the offender through the usage of technology. This method does not, however,
prevent crime but only allows checking the criminal’s indulgence in wrongdoing. Again, there
has not been much research on how these methods are successful (The Pennsylvannia Code,
2016).

FUTURE DIRECTIONS OF CORRECTIONS
In summation, it is noted that while there exist alternative methods to the traditional
parole and probation, the lack of research on the success rate of these interventions greatly
compromises the implementation of these methods. The methods would thus not be effective
though efficiency could be enhanced with more studies on the effectiveness of the programs.
