Comprehensive Community-Based Services for Offenders Information Pak. Part 3: A System for Delivering Comprehensive Services to Offenders.
Schroeder, Paul E.
This paper describing a system for delivering comprehensive services to offenders is the third of the five-part Comprehensive Community-Based Services for Offenders Information PAK that provides guidelines for developing a system to improve exoffender service delivery. (Parts 1 and 2, which also contain printed information, are available separately.) Following an introduction, the first section makes suggestions for providing the services. Topics include getting started/publicity (intermediaries, media, dissemination, and personal visits), recruitment and registration, orientation, screening/selection, assessment, counseling, support services, education, jobs (development, placement, follow-up, and follow-through), and production training center. Discussion in the next section focuses on continued provision of services through a system that changes to meet changing needs. The final section describes administrative and organizational structures for the comprehensive and coordinated offender services delivery system. It covers attitudes of persons involved who must be advocates for offenders, staff training, cooperative and contractual agreements between organizations, facilities, data collection for decision making, communications, and ongoing system evaluation. Appendixes include a list of people and organizations to contact and listing of reference documents. (YLB)
