Question: Beyond Scared Straight is a hit TV show on A&E, what is the difference between what you do and what they do?

March 13, 2014

Answer:

I get asked this question a lot so I might as well explain the difference in detail.

Beyond Scared Straight was a concept that was used in the 70’s and originated in Rahway State Prison in New Jersey.  The concept was to show teenagers what prison was really like in a hard, yelling and in your face way.The Scared Straight way has been proven to be ineffective and actually increase teens getting in trouble.  When a person yells at someone they put up a wall and close their minds.  Not a good way to teach something with lasting results.  What the Reality Check Program does is Read More »

Community Policing – How important is it? By: Larry Lawton

What is community policing? Community policing is when the police work with the community in a friendly open way to show the community they are human and want to help, not just arrest people.

Question continued from April 15, 2013: My 19 year old son was sentenced to one year in jail on a drug charge. I hear so many horrible stories. I am scared for him. Can you please give me advice on what I can do?

Answer: Please see the last few newsletters if you want to read the first two parts of the answer.

I will discuss enabling your son in prison. You are probably wondering how you can do that. The first issue is; does your son have a drug problem that wasn’t addressed. (This also goes for daughters).

A big problem with the prison system is they don’t address the real issue. What was the reason the person went to prison in the first place? If we are serious about reducing recidivism, we have to address this issue.

95% of all people incarcerated are addicts of one sort or another. There are more drugs IN prison then on the streets. Pretty hard to believe ha! Well, it’s true. What I mean is, drugs are easily obtained if an addict wants them.
