Japanese corrections : managing convicted offenders in an orderly society by Elmer H Johnson( Book )

In his analysis of the current Japanese corrections system, Elmer H. Johnson focuses on three basic questions: What are the characteristics of the major programmatic elements? How do various personnel carry out their programmatic responsibilities? Why are the various duties and activities carried out in a particular way? Johnson points out that compared with the United States, where prison populations are huge and often violent, Japan incarcerates relatively few criminals. In 1989, for example, Japan locked up only 34 out of every 100,000 citizens while the United States imprisoned people at a rate of 271 per 100,000. Examining the cultural differences leading to this disparity, Johnson notes that in Japan prosecutors are reluctant to refer defendants for trial and the courts often suspend sentences for convicted felons. In Japan, two bureaus - the Correction Bureau and the Rehabilitation Bureau - administer all Japanese correctional activities. Placing these bureaus in the organizational scheme of the Ministry of Justice, Johnson traces the history, describes the organizational ideologies, and outlines the special features of each. Johnson sums up by noting that both the Correction Bureau and the Rehabilitation Bureau depend on the overall operations of police, prosecutors, and judges. More broadly, he asserts, both bureaus are creatures of Japanese society and culture. The assets and disadvantages of the bureaus reflect society's reluctance to sentence defendants to prison and, to a lesser extent, the reluctance to place them on probationary supervision

Work release; factors in selection and results by Elmer H Johnson( Book )

4 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the first systematic evaluation of an American work-release program, this investigation employed data on all male prisoners placed on the program in North Carolina between 1957 and 1963. Outcome was measured against the variables affecting selection for work-release. The study found that factors affecting parole performance after work-release include: (1) length of term served before work-release, (2) length of time on work-release, (3) skill level of work-release job, (4) continuation of work-release job into parole, and (5) relationship between work-release and parole locale. A sample of orthodox parolees was compared with the paroled work-releasees to disclose possible differences in parole performance and problems raised during supervision. The study concluded that the work-release experience generally brought fewer problems for the parole supervisor, in terms of transgressions, mobility, and family problems. The problems raised by the work-release parolee were more likely to be associated with behavior consistent with the ultimate purpose of parole.
