Report on the Manpower Needs of the Law Offender in Illinois.
Muth, Edmund H.
The Law Offender's Planning Task Force of the Governor's Advisory Council on Manpower was established to develop a comprehensive manpower services plan for law offenders in Illinois. The report discusses what is needed in effective criminal justice manpower services and the problems peculiar to delivery of manpower services within the constraints of criminal justice institutions. Focus is on services for adult law offenders in penitentiaries and on parole, the juvenile justice system, and court services in the pretrial, probation, jail, and work release areas. Planning issues and methodologies are reviewed, and a recommended program plan for fiscal year 1976 is presented. Review of the current system indicates that manpower services are not delivered in adequate scale or quality to meet the needs of Illinois law offenders. A basic services model was therefore developed, stressing community-based services for clients not yet institutionalized and reintegrative services for those in corrective institutions, with emphasis on screening and referral, work release, practical diversion, training and job placement, and other manpower vocational services.
