PowerPoint: Does Prison Work?

Previously posted on Crime and Deviance Channel, this PowerPoint Presentation outlining Bandyopadhyay et al’s “Acquisitive Crime: Imprisonment, Detection and Social Factors” (2012) research is now available in two forms:

1. Click to advance Presentation.

2. Auto-advance Presentation.

The research looked at three main questions:

  • How are crime rates affected by the costs and benefits of crime?
  • Does sentencing reduce crime?
  • Are short sentences more effective than long sentences?
  • The quantitative analysis of crime rates covered a 16-year period (1992 – 2008) and examined 4 types of crime:

  • burglary
  • theft and handling
  • fraud and forgery
  • robbery.
  • This updated PowerPoint Presentation corrects a couple of spelling errors, uses an embedded font for correct display on machines that don’t have the required font installed and adjusts the Presentation to Widescreen.
