The National Manpower Survey of the Criminal Justice System. Volume Six: Criminal Justice Manpower Planning.
National Planning Association, Washington, DC.
Focusing on data needs and methods for manpower planning and manpower projections, this document is one in a series of six volumes reporting the results of the National Manpower Survey (NMS) of the Criminal Justice System. Chapter 1 of five chapters discusses the role and objectives of criminal justice manpower planning at different levels of government (federal, state, and local) and the major categories of information needed. Chapter 2 describes the NMS criminal justice manpower projections model, which was used as a basis for the manpower projections included in this series of reports. Projections are presented for sector employment, employment by occupation, and personnel turnover and recruitment needs in key occupations. The procedures for maintaining and updating the model at the national level are included in Chapter 3 along with an identification of major data sources. Chapter 4 presents the applications of these procedures to manpower planning at the state level and includes a review of experience in a collaborative survey effort with the North Carolina State Planning Agency. Finally, conclusions and recommendations concerning measures to improve both federal and state-level criminal justice manpower planning are presented in Chapter 5. The survey procedures, based on the North Carolina prototype survey, and the detailed programming procedures for updating the NMS survey as well as a description of the model are appended. (BM)
