Annotation: This issue of the National Institute of Justice Journal contains three articles on topics of interest to law enforcement and corrections professionals.
Abstract: The first article describes four programs that prepare inmates and parolees for employment and searching for a job by providing intensive educational and life skills services, social support and post-employment follow-up, in addition to traditional job preparation and placement assistance. All of the programs offer a promising approach to reducing recidivism and correctional costs. The second article examines in detail the claim that attending to both individuals and the issues in a case leads to more effective dispositions. It asks courts to consider ways to enhance positive outcomes without subordinating due process and other justice values. The third article discusses private funding for criminal justice initiatives and suggests techniques for preparing grant applications. It also describes The Foundation Center, a nonprofit service organization that collects, organizes, analyzes, and disseminates information on foundations, corporate giving, and related subjects.
