Abstract: Programs that would benefit from community input include training schools, community residential and non-residential programs, detention centers, probation, and after-care services. Since the staff may be consumed with the immediate needs of an agency, the advisory board can help shape the philosophy, goals, and mission of a program. Advisory boards can handle public relations and damage control after a negative incident such as rape and assault occurs in an agency. Though management should value the opinions of board members, policy and practices are the domain of the agency, and staff is not obligated to implement board suggestions. To educate board members on the operations of an agency and the legal issues involved, comprehensive training is essential and should reflect staff instruction to some degree. Appendix
