The primary role of the corrections within the criminal justice department if t ensure that the offenders undergo rehabilitation so that they cannot go back to the crimes that they committed (Marsden, 2017).

Possible questions:

The government is using the tax payer’s money in the correctional services and has trained probation officers to help mitigate the high crime rate by rehabilitating offenders (Skinns, 2016). Besides, the government has made the rehabilitation open to other non-governmental organizations that are interested in the process.

  1. What plans des the federal government have regarding the rehabilitation of offenders?

The non-governmental organization benefit in a number of ways from the services that they offer (Skinns, 2016). First, the government, upon the analysis of the results pays them and provides them with some resources. The method of payment to the rehabilitation firms is pay after positive results.

  1. How do the non-governmental organizations benefit from the volunteering?

The government has proof that the pay be result has been effective in other departments (Skinns, 2016). Pay by result has been for long term work which is one of the reasons it has been adopted in the criminal justice department.

The government ensures that it takes care of the situations after the rehabilitation of the offenders by making follow ups on the behaviors to ensure that they do not commit other offences or even the offences they were involved in (Skinns, 2016).

The topic of research is on juvenile delinquency. The case of juvenile delinquency and the best way to approach the situation is by ensuring that they undergo the rehabilitation process because they are still developing and the rehabilitation can really influence their lives. For the children, the phase will help them become better citizens in future (Siegel & Welsh, 2016). It is important to note that for the children, they are still developing and can take a short time to change, which one they do, complications of criminal offences when they are adults are rare.
