Effi Lambropoulou 1 The ‘End’ of Correctional Policy and the Management of the Correctional ‘Problem’ in Greece The increase in crime and the risks to public security constitute the main arguments for the strengthening of the mechanism for formal social control in Greece. During recent years, the need for an increase in police personnel and a reorgani- sation of the Police Corps has gained more and more emphasis. The higher rates of crime and its qualitative differentiation in comparison with the past are the main justifications put forward. Related arguments are advanced for the rise in the number of correctional officers in prisons in order to reflect the growth in prisoner rates and the changes in the composition of the general population. On the other hand, a constant decrease in social workers and specialised personnel in the prisons, as well as in the Juvenile Service has been observed. Moreover, the support from state institutions offering social relief to sensitive population groups (e.g. societies for the after-care of prisoners, for the protection of juveniles etc.) has declined, while there is a tendency for areas of responsibilities to be transferred to private 2 and non-governmental organisations, subsidised, in part, by
