Excerpt from The Cause and Cure of Crime
HE invitation to publish this book fur nishes an occasion for urging afresh the improvement of our city police stations and county jails, which were so severely condemned by the last International Prison Congress. The nation which originated the Reforinatory and the Juvenile Court, and which has devel oped the parole system and probation of adults, has yet to learn and feel how its honor is sullied by our local prisons. Recent discus sions and experience require new emphasis on psychological laboratories in schools, courts, reformatories, and prisons; on work colonies for alcoholics and degraded misdemeanants; on a better legal basis for prison regulations; on reform of the police to save them from corruption in unholy alliance with the social evil, and to train them for the fine calling of prevention of crime; and on the readjustment of the criminal law and procedure to make them conform to the requirements of modern knowledge of the criminal character.
Charles richmond henderson. The University of Chicago, October, 1914.
