Abstract: Developments for the year involve inmate population and classification, custody, personnel, staff training, business management, maintenance, food service, community release programs, institutional industries, inmate medical and psychiatric services, the volunteer program, and inmate educational programs. Major renovations to the housing units (i.e., heat, hot water, shower rooms) were begun, and over 150 volunteers representing various church and community organizations sponsored and assisted at religious and holiday activities. Programs included special painting projects, the assignment of additional staff to inmates with emotional problems, and the presentation of a program for staff and their families on stress and burnout. Furthermore, the institutional garden was successful in providing fresh fruits and vegetables to the residents and staff. A discussion of other staffing changes, a review of gifts and donations received, and a further description of inmate treatment programs are included. (Author abstract modified)
