Special inmate populations have been increasing in number across United States’ jails and prisons as a result of “get tough” sentencing changes and mass incarceration. First, describe the prevalence of your chosen special inmate population. Second, describe the major challenges experienced by the special inmate population and the challenges/considerations that must be addressed by the correctional system. Third, develop a new policy/program idea that would help to ease the identified challenges. Please be sure to address each part of the question and appropriately cite, in APA format, at least one scientific article to support your argument.
