Manpower for Correctional Rehabilitation in the South.
Joint Commission on Correctional Manpower and Training, Washington, DC.; Southern Regional Council, Atlanta, GA.
Approximately 125 persons from 15 states of the Southern region attended the Institute, which sought to examine the need for correctional manpower in the region, to assess the present resources for training personnel to meet these needs, and to explore ways in which these needs might be met more effectively. The institute considered the background of the manpower problem, trends in correctional rehabilitation, needs for manpower, universities, resources and administrative models, and university-agency models. Recommendations included: (1) Contiguous states can do more to share their resources, particularly training resources, (2) A regional training program in corrections and counseling, as it deals with corrections, could be developed with the assistance of the Southern Regional Education Board, and (3) The organization of a pilot training center for correctional rehabilitation staffs should be considered.
