Work Release: Toward an Understanding of the Law, Policy, and Operation of Community-Based State Corrections, Volume I. Final Report.
Swanson, Richard M.
The document reports the results of the Work Release-Manpower Study in two volumes. Volume I describes the efforts to develop a framework on which to conceptualize the understanding of work release and the variables that influence the effectiveness of the operation of community corrections. The framework was used to assess this influence in 50 work release centers in four states and the District of Columbia; additional data were gathered from a national mailed questionnaire survey.
