A Training Program for Pat Frisking Female Inmates for New York City Department of Correction Officers.
Andrews, Brenda M.
A training program was developed for male correction officers confronted with pat frisking female inmates. The training goal was to have correction officers in women's prisons identify female inmates' contraband and be able to determine alternatives for male correction officers who were confronted with pat frisking female inmates. The Dick and Carey (1985) Instructional System Design model (analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation) was used. The analysis stage identified the need for this training, which was based on the daily tasks of a correction officer. In the design stage, the instructional objectives were developed, grouped, and sequenced into manageable lesson plans. The method and media were determined to provide instructional information and to gain and maintain learners' attention. Test items were constructed, and evaluation methods were chosen. The development stage gave a step-by-step description of the information, examples, practice items, and feedback needed for each objective. During this stage, subject matter experts examined the project. In the implementation stage, participants were identified for trial tests. Revisions made in the materials were based on the feedback received from one-on-one and small group trials. In the evaluation phase, the pretest was statistically compared to the posttest. Results indicated that the training was effective. (Appendixes include the job task analysis, instructional objectives, learning materials, instruments, and 27 references.) (YLB)
