Annotation: This study examined the Navy's need for Correctional Custody Units (CCUs), used to correct minor disciplinary infractions without resorting to court-martial.
Abstract: Data were gathered on the program's effectiveness in retraining young offenders, the potential effects of anticipated Jacksonville and Norfolk CCU closures on the Navy disciplinary system, and the financial costs and benefits of the system. Sources included a questionnaire, CCU records, and a cost-benefit analysis. Commanding officers' response to the questionnaire indicated that the CCU was seen as an effective means of retraining young offending naval officers. Three factors were cited as contributing to CCU underutilization: officer preference for other disciplinary measures, perceived lack of appropriate candidates, and systemic barriers such as cost, time, distance, and logistics. Analysis of CCU records showed that the program was used to discipline young, first- term sailors who committed minor infractions. Most of the sailors retrained at the CCUs over the 2 years prior to this study remained on active duty. The cost benefit analysis suggested that the net value provided to the Navy by this program was substantial, and greater than the costs of program maintenance. 16 tables, 6 figures, and 3 appendixes
