State In-Service Training for Correctional Personnel. Final Report. Volume I.
Kiefer, George W.
Volume 1 of a final report in three volumes, this is an overall narrative account of a correctional staff training project in Illinois. The rationale of the project, methods and activities involved, findings, and evaluations are summarized and synthesized. Initial objectives were to survey training practices and needs; determine resources available for present and future staff training; design programs of training in terms of individual and agency needs; and stimulate conditions conducive to correctional staff training. A literature review, a questionnaire survey of correctional personnel, and solicitation of information from resource persons and agencies, were among the procedures used. Reports on relevant topics were distributed to those involved in or concerned with Illinois corrections. Based on findings, a much stronger state level commitment to correctional staff training was urged. Recommendations were also made on general planning and administration, and concerning the six penal institutions, the Illinois Youth Commission, and various other state and local correctional personnel. Finally, objectives and prospects for the immediate future were discussed. (See also AC 006 761 and AC 006 762. (LY)
