Criminologist Natasha Frost on Correctional Officer Suicide and Officer Wellbeing

Professor Natasha Frost (Northeastern University) is an expert in the study of punishment and social control. Specifically, she is interested in mass incarceration and the effects of incarceration on individuals, families, and communities. She has served as a consultant for the Massachusetts State Parole Board, worked collaboratively with the Massachusetts Department of Correction, and conducted correctional program assessment and recidivism studies for several Massachusetts counties. More recently she has been awarded federal funding to study the effects of mass incarceration on the community and on the well-being of those who work in correctional settings. Her book, The Punishment Imperative: The Rise and Failure of Mass Incarceration in America, co-authored with Todd R. Clear was published in 2014 by NYU Press. Other publications have appeared in Justice Quarterly, Criminology & Public Policy, Punishment & Society, Crime, Law and Social Change, and Studies in Law, Politics, and Society.
