Reviews

"I believe this book could be very beneficial to the correctional designers as they plan, design and develop new facilities. The Indiana Department of Correction is not unique. Correctional philosophy and development throughout the USA is amazingly the same. ... This book will hopefully assist those who design new facilities and will hopefully encourage states to expand and share design concepts and treatment facilities."
