Jails have a sordid history in American corrections. They have served as warehouses for vagrants, petty offenders, and social undesirables. Today, inmates in jail are a diverse lot. They include the convicted and those awaiting court proceedings, as well as both felons and misdemeanors. The new generation of jails allows direct supervision of offenders.
