SECTION 1



PRISON




A prison, penitentiary, or correctional facility is a place in which
individuals are physically confined or interned and usually deprived
of a range of personal freedoms. Prisons are conventionally institutions,
which form part of the criminal justice system of a country, such that
imprisonment or incarceration is a legal penalty that may be imposed by
the state for the commission of a crime.

In popular parlance of many countries, the term jail (gaol) is considered
synonymous with prison, although legally these are often distinct
institutions: typically jails are intended to hold persons awaiting trials
or serving sentences of less than one year, whereas prisons host prisoners
serving longer sentences.

PRISON REFORM




Prison reform is the attempt to improve conditions inside prisons,
aiming at a more effective penal system.

Prisons have only been used as the primary punishment for criminal
acts in the last couple of centuries. Far more common earlier were
various types of corporal punishment, public humiliation, penal
bondage, and banishment for more severe offences, as well as capital
punishment.

RECIDIVISM




Recidivism is one of the most fundamental concepts in criminal justice.
It refers to a person's relapse into criminal behavior, often after the
person receives sanctions or undergoes intervention for a previous crime.
Recidivism is measured by criminal acts that resulted in rearrest,
reconviction or return to prison with or without a new sentence during a
three-year period following the prisoner's release.
