Annotation: Boot camps represent an effort to curb criminality and rehabilitate offenders, the idea being to solve criminal behavior by dealing with it early enough to exert a positive influence and alter the antisocial behavior of young offenders.
Abstract: Drill instructors play an important role in boot camps. They must be able to consistently conform to boot camp values, encourage inmates to be committed to the same values, set and enforce standards, treat inmates with respect, be physically fit, have integrity and the proper background, and be adequately trained. The Rehabilitation Instructor Training Course at Fort McClellan, Alabama, and shock incarceration training in New York are described as two of the most comprehensive training programs for boot camp staff.
