      The Prison Journal was begun by the Pennsylvania Prison Society, America’s oldest prison reform organization, which was founded in 1787. The Prison Journal has continued to be a central forum for studies, ideas, and discussions of adult and juvenile confinement, treatment interventions, and alternative sanctions.
