Budgetary restraints and the possibility for rehabilitation, change, and desistance.

R​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​esearch Paper Instructions Congratulations! You have just been hired by Governor Kemp to serve on a special correctional board of experts who are to provide a recommendation to the state of Georgia for the prevention, treatment, and punishment of violent serial offenders. Your role on the committee is to write up a proposal for Governor Kemp summarizing the various strategies that the state should use to address violent serial offenders/offending. There are some important things you need to know about Governor Kemp before you write your recommendation: First, he is not interested in your opinion but an educated perspective that is based on what is known about the prevention, treatment, and punishment of offenders. This means, that you will need to back-up your recommendations with scientific research findings and in-text citations from academic sources. Second, Governor Kemp will want a recommendation document that balances both the need to hold offenders accountable and keep the public safe, while also considering budgetary restraints and the possibility for rehabilitation, change, and desistance. Third, Governor Kemp is looking for a proposal that addresses violence across the life-course (i.e., from childhood through adulthood) and includes multiple different treatment/punishment options (i.e., not ​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​a “one-size fits all” policy). After reading your paper, Governor Kemp should have a detailed understanding of the serial violent offender and the various ways that the state can control and prevent this type of offending among youth and adults. You must incorporate at least 4 of the required course readings and 4 outside sources.
