Corrections - Boot Camp Prisons

incarceration camps offenders provide

Boot camp prisons, often referred to as shock incarceration camps, provide intense short-term (from 90 to 120 days) incarceration for young, generally nonviolent, offenders. Just as the name "boot camp" implies, the centers employ strict military drills, discipline, and require hard physical labor. They also provide special education, counseling, and drug treatment. Boot camps are another type of alternative incarceration relieving prison overcrowding. Their effectiveness in deterring repeat offenders was still under study at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
