Carter, Robert M.; And Others
Intended to help the correctional administrator make informed choices in planning, implementing, and improving community correctional centers, this program model on community correctional centers contains descriptions of three major program model options and information on how the correctional center should be operated. Components of the Des Moines Program Model as well as programs at three Des Moines replication sites are outlined, and strengths and weaknesses of the model are discussed. The Montgomery County (Maryland) Work Release/Pre-Release Program is evaluated. Four privately operated program models are described. Establishing the needs for community corrections, defining the types of clients to be served, the programs and services to be offered, the type and location of facilities, developing policies and budgets, and staffing the correctional organization are among planning issues examined. Guidelines are set forth for center organization and management. Personnel recruitment, selection, deployment, training, and appraisal are discussed. General program management, managing program participation, intake, orientation, classification and individual programming, program components, supervision, counseling, employment, training, medical programs, finances, and program termination are described. Facilities and facilities management, operational planning, management information systems, and case records and fiscal management are outlined. Program evaluation criteria and standards are provided. (MN)
