National Assessment Program Survey of Criminal Justice Personnel in the United States, 1986 by J. Thomas McEwen( )

2 editions published in 1993 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey probed the needs and problems facing local criminal justice practitioners. Within each sampled county, survey questionnaires were distributed to the police chief of the largest city, the sheriff, the jail administrator, the prosecutor, the chief trial court judge, the trial court administrator (where applicable), and probation and parole agency heads. Although the general topics covered in the questionnaires are similar, specific items are not repeated across the questionnaires, except for those given to the sheriffs and the police chiefs. The sheriffs surveyed were those with law enforcement responsibilities, so the questions asked of the police chiefs and the sheriffs were identical. The questionnaires were tailored to each group of respondents, and dealt with five general areas: (1) background characteristics, including staff size, budget totals, and facility age, (2) criminal justice system problems, (3) prison crowding, (4) personnel issues such as training needs and programs, and (5) operations and procedures including management, management information, and the specific operations in which the respondents were involved. In some cases, sets of question items were grouped into question batteries that dealt with specific topic areas (e.g., staff recruitment, judicial training, and number of personnel). For example, the Staff Recruitment battery items in the Probation and Parole Questionnaire asked respondents to use a 4 point scale to indicate the seriousness of each of the following problems: low salaries, poor image of corrections work, high entrance requirements, location of qualified staff, shortage of qualified minority applicants, and hiring freezes ...

Gainesville Junior College Community Impact Study Needs Assessment Inventory by Barbara Webster( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procedures, methodology, and findings are reported for a six-part study undertaken by Gainesville Junior College (GJC) to: assess the economic impact of the college on its service area; determine community attitudes concerning the degree to which GJC has met stated goals and objectives; and identify needed services and programs that GJC has yet to provide. Part I of the report examines the economic impact of the college, based on a model designed to assess college-related business volume, college-related expenditures, expansions of area bank credit as a result of college-related deposits, the amount of local property taxes paid by faculty and staff, the personal income of area residents employed at GJC, and the durable goods consumption of those employees. Parts II through VI describe the purposes, procedures, and findings of five community surveys: (1) interviews with 91 recognized community leaders; (2) a survey of area high school seniors and counselors; (3) a telephone survey of 952 randomly selected GJC alumni; (4) a survey of GJC administrators, faculty, and staff; and (5) a survey of 400 GJC students. Among other items, the surveys solicited information on: awareness of GJC programs and services; community problems and needs; community attitudes toward the quality of GJC programs and services; and areas in which GJC could improve. Survey instruments are appended. (JP)

A local variation : region, locality and industrial quiescence in Rockhampton to the 1950s by Barbara Webster( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In contrast to the North Queensland city of Townsville, which, from the industrial record to the 1950s at least, gained a reputation for militancy, its Central Queensland counterpart of Rockhampton demonstrated comparative quiescence. These contrasting portraits demonstrate the fallacy of the assumption that the making of the working class was uniform in Australia; they illustrate that workers' outlook and organisation was shaped not only by a shared national experience but also by differing regional and local experiences. While Townsville's militancy has been the focus of historical exploration, the same cannot be said of Rockhampton. The following paper examines the question of industrial quiescence in the Central Queensland 'capital' to the 1950s and locates the roots of this phenomenon in a complex of causative factors: the nature of the regional economy which, despite superficial similarity with the North, was profoundly different in vital ways; labour controls of both management and union leadership, and other organisational factors within unions; and, at a deeper level, the socio-cultural complexion of the city which fostered relative inter-class harmony and deterred class consciousness and militancy on the part of workers
