* A description of jail’s place in corrections and its role throughout history *
* The jails have been around for quite some time now and have played a huge role in our society. They were originally designed to serve one purpose and that was to lock an individual up. They were very inhumane and cruel. Not a place anyone would want to go and in fact people feared being locked up due to the fact of the things that would happen to an individual while they were in the jail. There was a severe lack of food and the hygiene levels were very low. The jails over time changed as the times changed. They started to realize that a jails place was not to just lock up an individual but to rehabilitate them as well and get them ready to be released back into society. They have done this by adding several different programs over the years. You can now get your high school diploma while in jail. There are several drug and alcohol related programs to get an individual clean and sober and ready for release. There are trade school programs so inmates can learn a trade and when released can get a job and become a productive member of society. *
