The major expectations of corrections are: 1) incapacitation, 2) community protection/public safety, 3) deterrence, 4) restoration, 5) reintegration, 6) rehabilitation, and 7) retribution. Incapacitation includes measures such as orders issued by courts or parole boards. Community protection/public safety is achieved when an individual on supervision engages in no further criminal behaviors or other harmful activity. Deterrence is achieved when the punishment convinces an offender to never commit another crime. Restoration entails measures such as reparations to the community and/or victim, acts such as community service, and the completion of restitution. Reintegration occurs when a former offender is able to successfully readjust into free society. Rehabilitation occurs when an offender experiences genuine reform and is able to create a new life with changed thinking and behavior. Retribution occurs when a crime victim and others observe that the offender has received justice.
