Strategies for Meeting Correctional Training and Manpower Needs, Four Developmental Projects.
Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (Dept. of Justice), Washington, DC.
The Law Enforcement Education Act of 1965 has placed special emphasis on projects involving training and utilization of correctional manpower. The four representative projects reported here give a comprehensive view of the problems of upgrading correctional staff and possible solutions to those problems: (1) "The Developmental Laboratory for Correctional Training," used a series of university based institutes to train trainers and middle management personnel in techniques and teaching concepts not currently used in corrections, (2) "Rural Correctional Staff as Agents of Community Change," provides materials to assist trainers in planning and implementing staff training programs, and discusses rural characteristics and implications for training in detail, (3) "Targets for In-Service Training," describes a seminar which related definitions, concepts, and methods to the development of in-service training programs by correctional agencies, and (4) "Manpower for Correctional Rehabilitation in the South," reports a conference which examined regional correctional manpower needs and assessed present and potential training resources.
