Annotation: This fiscal year 1992-93 report of the Tennessee Department of Correction focuses on history, commissioner staff operations, administrative services, institutional programs, community services, and systemwide statistics.
Abstract: During fiscal year 1992-93 three institutions were well on their way to completion: Northwest Correctional Center, South Central Correctional Center, and Northwest Correctional Center. By the end of the fiscal year, the Tennessee Offender Management Information System was completely operational. The Division of Community Services added 125 probation officers during the year, allowing the department to demand greater accountability from those felons supervised in the community. This division also expanded community corrections programs to cover 93 counties. The department improved its ability to produce quality information and reports and to track a number of aspects pertinent to the offender population. The report also provides a historical context and overview that documents the many changes that have occurred in the areas of offender management, community programs, alternatives to incarceration, the offender population, organizational procedures, and organizational behavior. Progress is evidenced by the release of the department from Federal court supervision on May 14, 1993. Corrections statistics pertain to the felony inmate population, employee grievances, the budget, personnel characteristics, inmate incidents, and adult field services.
