In "A Forty Year Journey in Corrections," author Robert D. Hannigan, Sr. shares his most interesting stories from working within two of Kansas' correctional facilities. In "A Forty Year Journey in Corrections," Hannigan reflects on the hilarious, serious, and at times dangerous events he encountered throughout his career at the Kansas State Industrial Reformatory (now Hutchinson Correctional Facility) and the Kansas State Honor Camps. With the passing of four decades, Hannigan saw quite a few changes in the structure and organization of corrections in the sate of Kansas, and he describes how those changes in policy affected the staff as well as the inmates, giving readers an idea of how some convicts think and act, from amusing antics to violent gang fights. Hannigan also explores the "politics" of corrections, from the positive and negative results of external political selections to in-house practices such as favortism. Although offering insight into the challenges and hardships of working in corrections, Hannigan is quick to point out the personal rewards of assisting inmates through fair and reasonable treatment and by developing programs that woud benefit them upon release. Wildly original, "A Forty Year Journey in Corrections," appeals to anyone interested in what goes on behind bars.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. 632 pages. Television shows like Prison Break and movies like The Shawshank Redemption portray a skewed version of what goes on behind the prison walls. Robert D. Hannigan sets the record straight with his memoir, A Forty Year Journey in Corrections. Here he offers anecdotes, history lessons, moral conundrums, and a hearty dose of real life experiece to counteract the Hollywood interpretaion so many of us rely on. Hannigan began his career as a prison guard working the night shift at the Kansas State Industrial Reformatory. Though inmates threw glass jars and bars of soap at him on his first night, he soon earns their respect by refusing to be frightened away. Perhaps his Marine training helped him stay so strong in the face of burly convicts. Over the next few decades, Hannigan honorably climbs the promotional ladder all the way to warden, witnessing events that are sad, bizarre, funny, horrific, and all degrees in between. Many of Hannigans chapters are personal stories about his experiences with inmates and other personnel, but he occasionally veers off into accounts of renovations, complaints about political favortism, and musing on various recurring problems, such as over-crowding. Though his memoirs are overly long, often repetitive, and dichotomous, Hannigan does manage to make his readers smile at the bizarre patterns of human behavior. Thieves. murdereres. rapists: Hannigan was exposed to the worst of humanity and still managed to rise above it with grace and humor. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781419694745
