Annotation: DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPREHENSIVE AND PIONEERING PLAN FOR REGIONAL CORRECTIONAL STAFF TRAINING AT ALL LEVELS.
Abstract: THE REGIONAL PROGRAM HAS COORDINATING AND SUPPORTIVE FUNCTIONS AND CAN MAKE IMPORTANT PERSONNEL AND FACILITIES RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO THE SEVERAL STATES WHERE IT IS NOT FEASIBLE OR POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO PROVIDE THEIR OWN. IT CAN PROVIDE A CHANNEL AND PROCEDURES FOR INTERSTATE AND INTERDISCIPLINARY EFFORTS AND FOR EXCHANGE OF COMPARATIVE DATA AND IDEAS. THE REGIONAL PROGRAM IS AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP A NEW TYPE OF CORRECTIONAL STAFF TRAINING THAT WILL BE BROADER AND MORE SUBSTANTIAL AND SOPHISTICATED THAN THAT WHICH NOW EXISTS. IT IS A PIONEER PROGRAM DESIGNED AS A UNIT AND INTENDED TO LIFT EDUCATION FOR CORRECTIONAL WORK TO A NEW AND REALLY PROFESSIONAL LEVEL. IT WILL ALSO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF GAINS IN KNOWLEDGE - AND METHODS OF DEVELOPING KNOWLEDGE - ABOUT HUMAN RELATIONS THAT HAVE EMERGED AND ARE EMERGING IN THE UNIVERSITIES, IN BUSINESS, IN PUBLIC SAFETY, AND PUBLIC WELFARE. THE REGIONAL PROGRAM WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDS ADMINISTRATIVE, SUPERVISORY, TRAINING, AND TREATMENT STAFFS AND FOCUSED PRIMARILY ON FUNDAMENTAL ISSUES, BASIC PROBLEMS, BROAD TRENDS, AND POLICIES IN CORRECTIONS, BUT NOT TO THE NEGLECT OF APPROPRIATE CONCERN WITH THE IMPROVEMENT OF PROCEDURES AND RESOURCES FOR MAKING THE CORRECTIONAL EFFORT MORE EFFECTIVE. IT IS NOT INTENDED THAT THE REGIONAL PROGRAM SHOULD UNDERTAKE CONVENTIONAL IN-SERVICE TRAINING OF LINE CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS, OR EVEN OF PROBATION AND PAROLE OFFICERS, ON MATTERS SPECIFIC AND IMMEDIATE TO THEIR DAILY TASKS. THE REGIONAL PROGRAM - THROUGH IMPROVING METHODS OF RECRUITING AND SELECTING CORRECTIONAL PERSONNEL, ASSISTING STATE INSERVICE AND EXTRAMURAL TRAINING PROGRAMS, IMPROVING THE ORGANIZATION AND PROCEDURES OF CORRECTIONAL SYSTEMS AND THE COMPETENCY OF IN-SERVICE TRAINING AND ADMINISTRATIVE STAFFS - SHOULD INDIRECTLY IMPROVE THE CONDITIONS AND QUALITY OF IN-SERVICE TRAINING FOR SPECIFIC AND IMMEDIATE ON-THE-JOB TASKS AND PROCEDURES IN PROBATION, PAROLE AND INSTITUTIONAL WORK.
