Picture Projects, a company specializing in media documentaries, produced 360degrees.org; this specialization gives the site an unusual feel. The site takes the user inside prisons and inside the lives of those affected either directly or indirectly by the prison system. It was created with the hope of discovering new ideas about how to �reduce crime and strengthen communities.� The site includes stories, provided by inmates given tape recorders while incarcerated. A historical timeline includes a brief history of the criminal justice system spanning the 7th century through the 21st century. The �Resources� section includes topics such as curriculum ideas, links to other valuable sites, and a list of films and videos pertinent to the study of the Criminal Justice system. For an inside look at the world of U.S. prison life partnered with useful resources, 360degrees.org is worth a visit.
