Annotation: This document updates the systems approach to corrections in Ohio, which was created in the fall of 1993 to assemble and monitor major Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction initiatives that resulted from information and recommendations that emanated from the 11-day disturbance at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility.
Abstract: This resource guide reflects action taken in eight major divisions: Security and Supervision, Inmate Services, Inmate Programming, Employee Relations, Parole and Community Services, Communication and Education, Fiscal/Audits, and Committees Synopses and Status. Each division, category, and initiative is numerically codified to provide for identification, systematic documentation, and progress. A three-number structure is assigned to each initiative with the following descriptors: major division, category, and initiative. The assigned number is retained throughout the process, and each item is labeled as proposed, initiated, concluded, or deleted. Concluded items, boxed at the bottom of each page, have either reached resolution or have become part of ongoing departmental policy or procedure. Issues found not appropriate for the resource guide or duplicates of existing initiatives, have been deleted and can be found in an appendix. The fall 1994 edition of the Resource Guide will serve as a close-out document for initiatives generated by the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility disturbance. Remaining items will be folded into the "Systems Approach to Corrections in Ohio," which will become a complete computerized vehicle that contains all departmental initiatives such as the Operations Improvement Task Force, Strategic Plan, Goals, and Objectives and more. The Systems Approach to Corrections in Ohio portrays and evaluates issues and initiatives considered vital to operations of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. The systems approach enables the department to monitor the status of any initiative, issue reports, and provide accountability to all interested stakeholders.
