Abstract: FOR YEARS THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR HAS USED APPROPRIATED FUNDS FOR RESEARCH AND DEMONSTRATION PILOT PROJECTS IN VARIOUS STATES TO TRY TO FIND WAYS OF REHABILITATING CRIMINAL OFFENDERS. BECAUSE OF DEFICIENCIES IN AVAILABLE DATA AND THE LACK OF COMMON DEFINITION OF RECIDIVISM, THE AUTHOR STATES THAT IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE TO COMPARE THE RESULTS OF PILOT PROJECTS AND COMPONENTS. THIS REPORT SUMMARIZES PROJECTS UNDERTAKEN IN VARIOUS STATES IN THE AREAS OF INMATE TRAINING PROGRAMS, MODEL EX-OFFENDER PROGRAMS, PRETRIAL INTERVENTION, FEDERAL BONDING, AND A COMPREHENSIVE OFFENDER MANPOWER PROGRAM. THE REPORT RECOMMENDS THAT THE DEPARTMENT'S ROLE IN OFFENDER REHABILITATION BE ASSESSED, THAT THE DEPARTMENT'S EFFORTS BE COORDINATED WITH OTHER FEDERAL AND STATE AGENCIES INVOLVED IN OFFENDER REHABILITATION, AND THAT EFFORTS BE MADE TO INSURE THAT OFFENDER REHABILITATION PROJECTS MAINTAIN ADEQUATE RECORDS AND IMPROVE PROGRAM EVALUATION.
