Abstract:
The purpose of this research was to determine whether there are differences in the correctional approach of the federal government and the state of Arizona. To determine if those differences exist, a comparative study was done which looked at the mission statements, programs and services offered to inmates, cost, and recidivism rates at both the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Arizona Department of Corrections. Because differences were found to exist between the two levels of government, a policy recommendation was formulated to discuss how the Arizona Department of Corrections could implement new programs in order to have more success like its federal counterpart.
