Research2The category that I choose to do my research paper on is corrections. I think that this is a very important part of the criminal justice process. This is the process where we can rehabilitate an offender if they wish. This is the process an offender goes through after the crime has been committed. Corrections is also the process in where offenders come into contact with a person that is able to influence their lives, either in a good or bad way. We have come a long way from the beginning of when probation started in the late 1700s.During this period in time, offenders were handed over to “willing citizens” that would take themin, and watch over them after they were released from jails. Although probation officers were nota thing during this time, people say that American John Augustus is the first probation officer.
