Cost Analysis of Correctional Standards: Institutional-Based Programs and Parole. Volume II.
Singer, Neil M.; Wright, Virginia B.
This second of two volumes provides cost guidelines and cost estimation techniques for use by jurisdictions in assessing costs of their own ongoing or contemplated correctional program activities. (Volume I is a companion summary published as a separate document for use by criminal justice policy-makers in need of a reference to the policy issues surrounding institutional-based programs and parole, particularly those related to cost and implementing correctional standards. Both volumes are based on research to analyze and estimate the costs of implementing standards of the "Corrections Report" issued in 1973 by the National Advisory Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals.) This document includes 10 chapters: (1) General Methodology and Presentation of Findings, (2) Costs of Custodial Facilities, (3) Operating Costs for Custodial and Support Services, (4) Other Costs of Custody and Basic Support, (5) Parole Costs, (6) Education and Training Within Institutions, (7) Work Experience in Institutions, (8) Services for Released Offenders, (9) Rights of Inmates, and (10) Rights of Parolees. The preface indicates that it is assumed that planners and analysts using this report are familiar with some economic concepts and statistics, but that they are not necessarily economists. (HD)
