The Role of Correctional Industries--A Summary Report.
Stratton, John R.; West, Jude P.
To develop on a regional basis the empirical foundation for making judgments regarding the operation of correctional industries programs, data were collected from: (1) a national survey of 44 high-ranking state correctional officials and 41 correctional industry directors, (2) a regional survey of 70 non-industries administrative staff and 96 correctional industries personnel to the level of supervisor, representing seven midwest states, and (3) a community power structure survey of all members of the Iowa legislature, executives in 604 manufacturing firms, and major union representatives. Findings from the 7-state regional survey were presented during a 4-day regional correctional administrators institute, which was designed to propose a tentative model of correctional industries and solicit participant reaction toward the research findings. The proposed model: (1) locates the position of industries in the total correctional system, (2) focuses upon the correctional industries process as a subset of the total correctional system, (3) examines inmate progression through correctional industries by length of sentence, (4) suggests wage levels for three types of work, (5) presents a 10-year projection of the external factors affecting correctional industries, and (6) suggests the correctional industries functional mix over time. Charts illustrating the model are included in the discussion. (SB)
