When criminology research is bankrolled by the government and conducted by researchers or scholars who have had little or no physical interaction with the penal system, research findings are bound to be manipulated or bias. This reality is so because armchair technicians and scholars falsify research results for their selfish gain to derive promotion, increase revenue, and renovate their companies.
This type of research misrepresents the situation of the prison, and the disservice carried out by the penal system on arrested or imprisoned persons. Therefore, we advise responsible bodies like legal practitioners, scholars, and legislators to handle crises in correction with transparency and honesty during research, policy advocacy, evaluation, and implementation. To achieve this aim, an avant-garde school of thought called new school convict criminology must come to play.
