Local Corrections Programming
Minnesota Community Corrections Act Evaluation, Technical Report
United States Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice
Place of Production:
The study focused on services in the areas of education, substance abuse, mental health, counseling in employment and living skills, supervision, treatment, incarceration, and diagnosis and referral. The quality of correctional programming was indicated by changes in the numbers of programs and the numbers of clients using the programs. Data from 1972 through 1979 in each Community Corrections Act area formed the basis of the evaluation. All but one of the geographic areas showed improvement in at least one of the quantitative indicators. For example, the Dodge-Fillmore-Olmsted area and the Crow Wing-Morrison area both increased their number of programs as a result of participation in the Act. However, the increase in the ranges of services in these areas experienced greater increases in the range of services. The improved programming generally focused on offenders rather than on pre-offenders. Services for juveniles tended to receive more emphasis in the improvement efforts than did services for adults.
