Training Program for Louisiana Correctional, Probation and Parole Personnel; A Study of Present and Future Needs. Final Report.
Louisiana State Univ., Baton Rouge. Div. of Continuing Education.; Louisiana State Dept. of Corrections, Baton Rouge.
Training needs of probation and parole officers and personnel in penal institutions of Louisiana were determined by surveys of personnel background, education, age, experience, and expressed needs, in order to determine subject matter and potential enrollment of inservice classes. Questionnaires collected information from 53 probation and parole officers which resulted in a one week school involving 27 officers. The curriculum included human behavior and personality disorders, investigations, interviewing, counseling, case analysis, techniques of arrest, interagency cooperation and community resources, leadership, court relationship, narcotics, and out of state problems. The survey of penal institutions resulted in a one week pilot school for 26 correctional officers and supervisors in studies of personnel management, principles of supervision, communications, theories of crime, legal issues, drugs, counseling and management, human relations, public relations, personality disorders, and the custodial process. On the basis of attendee evaluation, both schools were successful in changing attitudes for better work performance. (Questionnaires, class schedules, course descriptions, and statistical data are included.) (pt)
