The four stages of release implemented by Sir Walter Crofton in the Irish system were solitary confinement, special prison, open institution, and ticket of leave, solitary confinement of approximately nine months. Much like Maconochie’s first stage, it included an emphasis on punishment, little interaction with other prisoners, silence, chapel, and work. Special prisons in which the offenders’ worked with other inmates, earned marks to gain privileges and move further to release. Inmates also had to complete three conduct classes, taking up to twelve months. Open institution, a transitional stage to society, with training on the freedoms and requirements of release and continued earnings of marks to reach the fourth stage. The Ticket of Leave, conditional release for the remainder of the sentence, and the first use of people as it is known today. The police supervised offenders in rural Ireland, but Dublin had a civilian employee who worked with the police, but also secured employment for the released prisoners, visited their homes, and had them report to him. If they disobeyed the rules, the ticket of leave could be revoked.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
