Rosłań, Marianna (2014) The image of Prison Services in ‘Forum Penitencjarne’ Monthly. „Profilaktyka Społeczna i Resocjalizacja” 23: 49-70.



In this study we analyze the image of the Prison Service presented in a specialized monthly, entitled ‘Forum Penitencjarne’ [Penitentiary Forum] and published by the HQ of the Polish Prison Service. The paper is based on empirical studies carried out with the categorization key which helped to distinguish individual traits looked for among prison officers, pinpoint issues and controversies faced by the penitentiary community, and identify priority tasks of the Service.
