Corrections in the USA provides a unique approach to learning about corrections by focusing on procedures and skills rather than theoretical perspectives of corrections. Based on real operational guidelines used in prisons today, the book aids the student in understanding what a correctional officer actually does, and what is expected of correctional officers. Part one of the book focuses on procedural matters and part two focuses on actual skills and equipment used in handling inmates.
