Leadership Studies Assignment on Correctional Management

You have been hired by a private corrections company. The company has operated several jails but now is planning to build its first medium-security prison. Some of the company’s leaders are unclear on what their new endeavor will require, so you have been given the task of preparing a 4-page report in a Microsoft Word document addressing the following:

Describe the key differences between operating a jail and operating a prison. Focus on the personnel requirements, training, daily tasks of the officers, etc. Apply the management concepts from this course to this section of the report.

Identify the other organizations, both inside and outside the criminal justice system, that the facility will need to interact with (and how) in order to perform its key functions.

Discuss the key functions that will need to be performed in the prison. For example, the facility will need to provide medical care and meals for the inmates.

Explain the unique supervisory challenges that will exist in a prison. What types of employee misbehavior are possible, and how can management guard against them?

Support your responses with examples.
