Crime is an anti-social act that it is the task of the prison official to deal with the offender that he and others may be deterred from the commission of such acts in future. The Prison objective should be to effect a reformation in the character of the criminal as will fit him again to take place in society and to become a useful citizen after release from the jail. The Prison staff from the jailor down to the warder, should be recruited with care and maintain faithful service. The prisoners should be brought under such humanizing and improving influences as will not only deter them from committing further crimes but will also result in real reformation of their character.
