Guidelines for Corrections Programs in Community and Junior Colleges.
Fox, Vernon B.
The community and junior college can assist in the corrections field by increasing the effectiveness of semiprofessional personnel in all areas and by providing pre-service and in-service education in the field of corrections. This report discusses the competencies needed, and the jobs and training necessary for work in corrections. Various types of programs are suggested: Certificate Program; Career-Oriented Associate Degree Program; College-Parallel Associate Degree Curriculum; and Certificate in Corrections Curriculum. Direction is given to correction programs through institutes, conferences, and workshops as well as through discussion of faculty, targets, goals, legislation, and general correction philosophy. The purpose of this report is to provide: (1) guidelines to the junior colleges on how they might serve the correctional field, and (2) information for correctional administrators on how they may use the junior colleges to improve their programs. Some organizations dedicated to the field of corrections, with their addresses, are listed. (CA)
