In addition, complete and up-to-date law libraries were installed for inmates at each correctional institution; an inmate handbook describing rules, policies, and programs was distributed to all inmates; and a postrelease employment placement system was implemented. Report sections focus on the activities of individual divisions. Photographs and data tables are included.
