"The purpose of this plan is to outline NIJ's [National Institute of Justice] strategy to support research regarding the role and potential of corrections to contribute to the enhancement of public safety and rehabilitation through the delivery of services and treatment. The plan broadly defines corrections to include jails, prisons, juvenile residential facilities, and community corrections, which may include probation, parole, and other corrections programs involving individuals under criminal and juvenile justice supervision in the community. These settings differ in important ways -- for example, structure and organization; staff working conditions, training, and other developmental support; organizational goals and strategies; availability and delivery of programming and treatment; and differences in the populations under supervision. This plan points out these differences and highlights special considerations where appropriate."
