The author looks at the federal prison population increase in the U.S. and its effects on the corrections community, as it reached from 25,000 in 1980 to 214,000 offenders in 2014. Topics covered include common issues faced by prisons and correctional facilities run by the Federal Bureau of Prisons like overcrowding and rising costs, the Charles Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections, and a planned final report by the Task Force for policy recommendations in managing overcrowding.
