Abstract: THE OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY WAS TO IDENTIFY AND ANALYZE PRACTICES AND PROCEDURES, RULES AND REGULATIONS, AND PUBLIC LAWS WHICH HINDER OR PREVENT INMATE TRAINING AND POST-RELEASE EMPLOYMENT AND TO RECOMMEND MODIFICATIONS. VISITS WERE MADE TO TEN CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTIONS IN NEW YORK AND MAINE AND INTERVIEWS WERE HELD WITH CORRECTIONS PERSONNEL, PAROLE OFFICERS, INMATES, AND EX-INMATES. RESEARCH OF LEGISLATION WAS CONDUCTED IN BOTH STATES AND SURVEYS WERE MADE OF POLICIES AND PRACTICES OF STATE LICENSING AND CERTIFICATION BOARDS AND MAJOR PRIVATE EMPLOYERS. SIXTY-SIX RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE IN THE AREAS OF INSTITUTIONAL OPERATION, TRAINING PROGRAMS, EMPLOYMENT, PAROLE AND AFTERCARE. MANY OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE DIRECTED SPECIFICALLY AT THE STATES OF NEW YORK AND MAINE BUT OTHER STATES WITH EQUIVALENT RESTRICTIONS ON THE EMPLOYMENT AND TREATMENT OF OFFENDERS WILL FIND THEM APPLICABLE.
