Kiefer, George W.
This is part of the final report on a project that focused on the inservice training needs of correctional personnel in the Illinois penal system. Most of this volume is devoted to an overview of existing staff training for line personnel and parole agents; an assessment of unmet training needs; group discussion and other demonstration projects in staff training; an annotated list of 130 training films; and an analysis of questionnaire responses from 1,292 employees at six penal institutions under the Illinois Department of Public Safety. Also included are summaries of the original project proposal and for its continuation, statistical data from a survey of 66 county sheriffs, the first issue (August 1968) of a newsletter for staff trainers, employment opportunities in the Illinois system for college and university graduates, and a tentative schedule of workshops and other training activities for the continuation year.
