Our group wants to advocate for lower incarceration rate. We believe it would be beneficial to criminals, states, and society as a whole if the legal system works to create behavior improvement programs and teaching programs. These programs may include psychological evaluation of prisoners, skill building programs, self-improvement activities, and teaching curriculum based on interests. This program would rule out people who have mental disorders and may commit crimes as a result of their compromised mental state, for which they should get proper treatment, not a prison sentence. The behavioral and teaching program will allow those in the prison system to develop desirable skills that can be used once they are out of prison, this will reduce the rate of reentry which is another issue in the U.S. prison system.
