Ielts Task 2 Newest Topic 2024 - SOLVED - Band 9Longer prison sentences to reduce crime or other alternative ways? Discuss and give your own opinion.



Some people think that the best way to reduce crime is to give longer prison sentences. Others, however, believe there are better alternative ways of reducing crime.


Discuss both views and give your opinion.


Discussions on how to reduce the crime rate have been ongoing. Some people believe that giving longer prison sentences is the best way to achieve this, while others disagree and suggest alternative methods.


There are advantages to sentencing offenders to longer prison terms. Firstly, extended periods in jail provide the opportunity for improved rehabilitation through various services. This would allow offenders to reflect on their behavior and educate themselves to avoid reoffending once released. Additionally, vocational training during an extended prison sentence would better prepare offenders to reintegrate into society and reduce the likelihood of reoffending. Lastly, a longer prison sentence would be a more effective deterrent for potential offenders.


However, some argue that extended prison sentences can have negative consequences as well. Allowing offenders to mix with other criminals while in prison could encourage them to form groups and commit further crimes upon release. Alternative methods, such as community service under supervision, could be used to better improve offenders' characters and help them reintegrate into society. The government could also focus on addressing the root causes of criminal behavior, such as the need for increased police presence to deter criminal activity.


In conclusion, there are different opinions on the effectiveness of longer prison sentences for reducing crime. While there are benefits to this approach, alternative methods should also be considered to address the issue.
