Is prison work a profession?
In this program, the activities of prison personnel are shown via film clips and criminologist Joseph D. Lohman describes the skills necessary for the intelligent operation of a penal institution. A guard who has served through several political changes in administration tells of problems created by the lack of tenure needed to build a professional force. Lohman and Alexander discuss the need for professional jail administrators and staffs and the related need for a wide variety of professional services to bring prisons up to the standards set by modern penological knowledge.
