Development of Guidelines for Prison Industry Programs

ILJ developed a comprehensive guide designed specifically for use by correctional administrators, legislators, and managers of prison industries. The guidelines are composed of several parts including: model legislation regarding prison industries, model legislation regarding acquisition of raw materials, marketing of industries products and services, development of model policies and procedures for prison industries, and analysis of legal actions and standards impacting prison industries. The Guidelines for Prison Industries were published in 1984, and an updated edition was published in 1990 under a grant from the National Institute of Corrections.
