Website 'In the Dock' has expanded to cover forces in England and Wales, but will it help to rehabilitate criminals or just make them rebel further? I'd like to speak to a rehabilitation clinic to see what techniques they use to fix a criminal's attitude. I'd also like to speak to a client who has recovered, and see whether they would have reacted differently if the website had been put in place at the time of their conviction. Showing a mugshot with a summary of the convict's crimes in my opinion is only going to have a labelling effect. It is a good thing as it will allow parents to track cases such as peadophiles in their area, but I do believe that it will only encourage non-conformative behaviour.
