Introduction(Introduce the topic and state your opinion. MENTION the reasons supporting your opinion.)

In order to create a sustainable and safe society, the institutions should be reform oriented. Though criminals who have committed heinous crimes such as a murder should be put behind bars, I think petty offenders should be reformed through community work. Engaging them in the local community will not only build a bond with the people but also help them become productive and contribute to overall development.

Body Paragraph 1: (Reason 1 – bond with the people)

Normal people often commit crimes because they do not empathize with others. To promote social empathy among these individuals, the unpaid work for the community is essential. Merely incarcerating them is not a solution to any problem. The United States government, for instance, punishes crimes like drunk driving, theft, and white collar crimes with community work because it helps the offenders to empathize with poor or disabled people and realize the selfishness of their actions. This promotes peace and harmony in the society.

Body Paragraph 2: (Reason 2 – productive and contribute)

Moreover, selflessly working for the community helps to make criminals a productive member of the society. For instance, in open jails of India, criminals are often motivated to engage in a commercial project that benefits the society. Since many people commit crimes because they cannot find jobs, commercial engagement trains them for a paid job. This also helps them contribute to the ecosystem of business and community development. Seeing the benefit of their work, criminals are reformed and find a productive path in life.

Conclusion: (Conclude the essay with FUTURE and IMPACT)

In conclusion, imprisoning criminals is not a solution to the problem of increasing crime rates in our society. The criminals need to be engaged in a manner that teaches them the benefits of hard-work and reforms them for economically and socially productive lives.
