The size and diversity of the prison population in Poland during the period of penal-executive legislation of 1997
The size of the prison population, its size and dynamics understood as the developmental tendency of this phenomenon over a specific period of time as well as its structure, has a high cognitive value related to the punitive nature of the criminal justice system. It also serves to assess the values of the penitentiary system, and in particular to implement in practice the guiding principle of the execution of the penalty of deprivation of liberty, which is the principle of individualization. The study presents extensive statistical data on this problem from 1997 to the present.
