The prison like to put revolution programs in place to save children. Completion of programs can mean a release day within months of being convicted for their crime.
The prison thinks correcting behaviors rather then doing a long sentence can change futures more successfully. Pushing Education has helped the offenders tremendously in many ways. Negative behavior is always confronted head on with these specific treatment programs.

Madison Prison has increased days of visiting to 7 days a week, and thinks this helps a great deal when families and friends come in and offer their support.

Girls prisons are found to be more harder then boys at times when it comes to each other. Girls hold on to grudges for longer periods of time then boys would.

When talking to the offenders, a lot haven't thought through the crime that they have committed and act on impulse.
