Intended for persons interested in initiating or modifying police stress programs, this report highlights police stress programs, this report highlights the strengths and weaknesses of various program structures, operations, and policies, based on an empirical study of existing programs. Information came from a review of literature on police stress, telephone interviews with representatives of 16 police stress programs, and onsite studies of eight police stress programs selected to represent a wide range of program approaches, characteristics, and services. The introduction defines stress, identifies stressors in police work and stress effects on police officers, and describes police departments' traditional handling of stress-related problems. Chapters focus on program planning, program organization and administration, program services, training and other preventive measures, and the monitoring and evaluation of police stress programs. Major findings and recommendations in each of these areas are summarized in the concluding chapter. Appendixes list the programs contacted by phone and contain the stress counseling project policy plan for the Rochester Police Department (New York). Also included are the police commissioner's memorandum on the Boston police stress program and police stress training materials. Chapter footnotes

Adult offender education programs by John P Conrad( Book )

5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two of America's most serious problems--crime and illiteracy--converge in our prisons. The majority of prisoners have serious educational deficits. Although prison educational programs exist, they are often ineffective because of poor program development, lack of administrative support, or small numbers of prisoners served. One innovation in prison education is the Free Venture program, which may succeed in revitalizing prison industries and in turning prisoner idleness into productivity. Elements of the Free Venture model include the following: (1) workers should be exposed to a realistic work environment; (2) prisoners should partially reimburse the state for custody and welfare costs as well as make restitution payments to victims; (3) prisoners should gradually be prepared for release into the community; (4) there should be fixed responsibilities with financial incentives and penalties for job placement of prisoners upon release into the community; (5) prison industries should receive financial incentives for successfully reintegrating offenders into the community; and (6) prison industries shou1d be self-supporting profit-making business operations. Seven states have undertaken the Free Venture plan with varying records of success and disappointment. Where the program has succeeded, its benefits are seen as fundamental changes in the nature of the prison community. (Besides an examination of the issues concerning prison education and an examination of some models of improved correctional education, this monograph contains an annotated bibliography on correctional education, keys to federal funding for education of adult offenders, and models of assessment instruments and school district legislation.)
