Guidelines for Work Experience Programs in the Criminal Justice System.
Styles, Jimmie C.; Pace, Denny F.
Educational institutions and the functional units of the criminal justice system have not been well coordinated. Working on the assumption that education and training are complimentary processes, there is a current attempt to bring these processes together in a single concept called "work experience." The purpose of this document is to merge the two processes by (1) defining work experience and stating the objectives for a work-experience program, (2) citing the existing types of work-experience programs and identifying how each fits into the work-experience concept, (3) relating work experience to the criminal justice system through suggested program development and patterns of work experience, and (4) offering guidelines for institution, agency, and student participants. Work experience has demonstrated educational value, offering students opportunities to study practices, concepts, and theories and to apply the elements learned. (Author/MC)
