Kentucky Jailers. Management and Operations Manual.
Baker, J. E.
This manual is designed to provide jailers, deputy jailers, matrons, assistant matrons, and other employees in the office of the jailer with a comprehensive reference to all constitutional, statutory, and regulatory standards about their duties and responsibilities. General and specific information on the legal basis for the management and operation of Kentucky jails, facts concerning policies and procedures, and information sources for the Kentucky jailer are given. The manual is divided into five sections: Section A discusses a series of jail related management and operations matters. Section B is a collection of Kentucky Revised Statutes arranged in numerical sequence. All are related to the jail and the functions, liabilities, and responsibilities of the jailer and his staff. Section C is divided into four subdivisions concerned with constitutional provisions, legal precedents, legal opinions, and the procedures of law on which the jailer must base management and operations decisions. Section D, consisting of seven subdivisions, describes resources available to the jailer for information, assistance, and guidance. Two of these sections describe training programs and procedures for enrollment. Section E gives standards of jail construction and renovation, health services, environmental factors, and standards for participation in the Deputy Jailers Subsidy Program. Section F contains a listing of cities grouped within the legal classification of each. (LAS)
