Product Overview

In "A Forty Year Journey in Corrections," author Robert D. Hannigan, Sr. shares his most interesting stories from working within two of Kansas' correctional facilities.In "A Forty Year Journey in Corrections," Hannigan reflects on the hilarious, serious, and at times dangerous events he encountered throughout his career at the Kansas State Industrial Reformatory (now Hutchinson Correctional Facility) and the Kansas State Honor Camps.With the passing of four decades, Hannigan saw quite a few changes in the structure and organization of corrections in the sate of Kansas, and he describes how those changes in policy affected the staff as well as the inmates, giving readers an idea of how some convicts think and act, from amusing antics to violent gang fights. Hannigan also explores the "politics" of corrections, from the positive and negative results of external political selections to in-house practices such as favortism.Although offering insight into the challenges and hardships of working in corrections, Hannigan is quick to point out the personal rewards of assisting inmates through fair and reasonable treatment and by developing programs that woud benefit them upon release.Wildly original, "A Forty Year Journey in Corrections," appeals to anyone interested in what goes on behind bars.
