Assignment Paper

In this assignment, you will explore how the type of correctional facility or architectural design of a facility can impact various populations of prisoners.

First, identify three correctional facility types or architectural designs in current use that you would like to explore a bit more. Enter one in each open text box in the “Type of Facility/Architectural Design” column of the provided Module Four Assignment Template. Then, identify an inmate population to enter into each open text box in the “Inmate Population” column. You may use the same type of facility/architectural design or inmate population more than once, but you must use a different type or population on which to explore the impact. Select the pairs that interest you the most. You may enter them in any order you wish. For example, you may wish to explore the effects of maximum security facilities on transgendered inmate populations.

Finally, in 100 to 150 words for each impact, explore how each facility type or design impacts the inmate population you selected in that row. You may want to consider the following:

What is the physical impact on these inmates?
What is the psychological impact on these inmates?
How does this facility type or design affect the relationship between inmate and officer?
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

Identify correctional facility types or architectural designs in current use.
Identify an inmate population.
Explore the impact of facility types or designs on inmate populations.
