131st Congress of Correction -- Philadelphia, PA -- August 11-16, 2001 "Our Principles: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow"


Hobbs, Ray, Corrections Today


The 131St Congress of Correction will be held in Philadelphia, August 11-16, 2001. In keeping with the spirit of emphasizing our "Declaration of Principles," as directed by our President, the Honorable Betty Adams Green, the Congress Program Planning Committee chose the theme, "Our Principles: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow."

There is growing evidence of the magnitude of the increased use of longer sentences, including life without the possibility of parole. Major Session B: Managing Aging, Chronically Ill and Terminally Ill Offenders will present a number of approaches and programs demonstrating how correctional institutions and agencies are meeting the challenges of the increasing population of aging, chronically and terminally Ill offenders.

The Committee believes that the concepts of making crime victims whole again and restoring the community, while offenders make restitution or provide services to victims and/or the community, are the guiding principles of restorative justice. …
