Prison systems experience continued pressure to house offenders in the most appropriate setting possible. While most correctional systems have implemented objective classification systems that have become quite effective in identifying inmates for the general prison population, less attention has been given to accurately classifying inmates who pose a higher risk and may require special management within the prison setting. This satellite/Internet training program will report on a study conducted over the past 2 years to increase knowledge on classification, programming, and supervision for high-risk offenders in the prison setting. Specifically, the broadcast will address the identification and selection process for high-risk and special management inmates, standards for their conditions of confinement, staffing issues, and release and re-entry issues.
