This article examines aspects of penal reform within our present criminal justice system. The author advocates application of a systems analysis approach to penal problems in order to provide predictive knowledge concerning effects that arise when changes or reforms are made within the penal system. He also suggests certain practical improvements that can be made in the present system and proposes that an agency be established by the Florida legislature to study the criminal justice system.
