Title Resilience in Corrections: A Proactive Approach to Changing Conditions.
Publication Date Mar 2014
Media Count 20p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract This white paper describes the issues facing corrections policy and leadership as the impacts of climate change and its related consequences confront departments, agencies, and facilities in coming years. Not only will corrections have to manage the effects of more extreme weather and temperatures than in the past. Corrections will also have to develop and improve its flexibility and resiliency in its operations to weather the multiple coming changes while maintaining its core functions of protecting the public, corrections staffs, and offenders. Programs and precedents do exist to provide foundations for future action when correctional policymakers and practitioners determine those issues must be addressed.
