Q This essay is specifically focused on the rural jail growth which is solely not related to the increase in crime Home, - The Growth of Jails in Rural America Introduction Rural America’s has 3,283 jails which are growing on account of the mass incarceration. Still, majorly county jail systems are operating and growing rapidly (Weisheit, 2013). As per the research trends, it can be identified how the increasing number of people are being held pretrial and also have a number of people that are held by other authorities. Thesis Statement The growth of jails in rural America and understanding of the law, regulation and environmental dynamics Outline This essay is specifically focused on the rural jail growth which is solely not related to the increase in crime, even though the crime rates are lower in rural in comparison to the urban counties (Huling, 2013). Body As rural America has predominantly a high number of people that are put behind bars, it has come as a concern for the policymakers and even the public who are taking steps to address a high growth of number of people who are jailed 3,000 locally run jails which belong to the county or municipal detention facilities (Huling, 2012). It also includes figures of the people who have been evidently being convicted of a crime (extensive part of the “pretrial” population), and people who have been jailed are part of the short term incarceration, that are tried in a given year. Steadily even the local jail populations have risen from 157,000 during 1970 to the surprising figure of 700,000 people in 2015 (Kang-Brown, 2017). Conclusion The growth of Jails is rising in rural America due to the low available resources in rural areas such as low jurisdiction (Beale, 2013). The lack of law and jurisdiction is on account of low personnel, tools; along with the low skilled services which can help to safely reduce jail populations. For the rural jurisdictions, it needs to support through the financial incentive that can increase jail capacity making the rent jail beds with respect to the other authorities.
