Comprehensive Community-Based Services for Offenders Information Pak. Part 2: Offenders in and from our Community: Columbus-Franklin County, Ohio.
Allton, Roger B.
This paper describing offenders and components of the criminal justice system is the second of the five-part Comprehensive Community-Based Services for Offenders Information PAK that provides guidelines for developing a system to improve exoffender service delivery. (Parts 1 and 3, which also contain printed information, are available separately.) The first section discusses the offender in the community (Columbus-Franklin County, Ohio) and human and social services that they need. The second section deals with criminal law violations and consequences of those violations. In the following section administration of laws, crime, and justice is considered. The criminal justice system is described as a nonsystem, and its subcomponents/subsystems are explored, including police, court structure, and corrections. The final section addresses difficulties--both real and artificial barriers--offenders experience in their transition from incarceration to freedom. A glossary of criminal justice terms is appended.
