Description
Episode Description
"'Prison of the Streets,' a 'KCET Journal' special report looks at a new weapon in the war against crime -- probation that includes intensive surveillance. The program shows how probation can turn the streets into a de facto prison for these career criminals. "This one-hour documentary takes a hard look at two innovative pilot programs that focus on intense supervision as a method for controlling the serious juvenile and adult offenders. If these promising experiments are as successful as initial data indicate, a potent weapon to reduce crime and protect public safety will have been found."--1987 Peabody Awards entry form.
