Privatization in Criminal Justice

by Bruce L. Benson

The various functions of criminal justice administration—policing, corrections, dispute resolution, etc.—have traditionally been the exclusive domain of the state. In recent years, there has been a trend toward private firms providing guard and protective services, building and managing penal institutions, and providing binding arbitration and conciliation services as a substitute for the state-run legal system. In this study, Professor Benson argues that the growth of these private alternatives is largely due to their effectiveness compared to the state-run criminal justice system.
