Justice Punishment Training Correcton

By Aboki Associates

Summary

Correctional Practice in Nigerian prisons today displays
evidence of lack of clarity in objective. This problem partly
derives from the historical controversy regarding the
purpose of prison. The public is unsure of what the Prisons
are supposed to be doing and how they are to do it. The
result of this misunderstanding is conflicting expectations
and assessment of the Prisons. Some members of the public
accuse the system of brutalising offenders while others
alleged that it coddles them.
Any meaningful effort at evolving a policy for reshaping
the prisons for greater effectiveness must begin by clearly
articulating their mission. As Drucker (1973) has rightly
observed, the institutions of the public sector must first
address questions of mission to assess what is their business
and what should it be. Therefore the crucial question we
must ask here, and of society in general is why do we lock
up people and what do we expect the imprisonment process
to achieve?

Abstract

Correctional Practice in Nigerian prisons today displays
evidence of lack of clarity in objective. This problem partly
derives from the historical controversy regarding the
purpose of prison. The public is unsure of what the Prisons
are supposed to be doing and how they are to do it. The
result of this misunderstanding is conflicting expectations
and assessment of the Prisons. Some members of the public
accuse the system of brutalising offenders while others
alleged that it coddles them.
Any meaningful effort at evolving a policy for reshaping
the prisons for greater effectiveness must begin by clearly
articulating their mission. As Drucker (1973) has rightly
observed, the institutions of the public sector must first
address questions of mission to assess what is their business
and what should it be. Therefore the crucial question we
must ask here, and of society in general is why do we lock
up people and what do we expect the imprisonment process
to achieve?
Answers to this question are varied and complex as
prisons exist within political, economic and socio-cultural
contexts in which there is little agreement about their
mission. In general, however, the choice of mission for
prisons in most societies of the world have tended to reflect
a number of evolutions in thought and practice, seeking to
cope with the difficult problems of punishing, restraining,
deterring and rehabilitating offenders.
ix
The monograph Justice, Punishment and Training, Correction
of Offenders in Nigerian Prisons: Policy Options provides
invaluable insights into why people are locked up in prisons
and what the imprisonment process is to achieve. It will be
of practical benefit to members of the public, prison
superintendents and administrators.
