Estonian Prison System
The change from camp-type prisons to chamber-system also supports the efforts to resocialize prisoners. That goal is also supported by the principle of locality - the prisoner is imprsioned in the prison that is nearest to his home, so that his social connections and ties with the family remain strong and help him/her to lead a law-abiding life. Resocializing of a prisoner is done through offering possibilities to study and work during imprisonment. Prisoners also have possibilities to use the services of social workers, psycholgists, medical personal and chaplains.
