National Inmate Survey (NIS-4) 2019-20 - Jails - 0 views

  •  
    On September 4, 2003, President George W. Bush signed the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-79). The act requires BJS to carry out, for each calendar year, a comprehensive statistical review and analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape. The act further instructs BJS to collect survey data: the Bureau shall use surveys and other statistical studies of current and former inmates. The law was passed in part to overcome a shortage of available research on the incidence and prevalence of sexual violence in correctional facilities. To implement the act, BJS developed the National Prison Rape Statistics Program (NPRS), which includes four separate data collection efforts: the Survey on Sexual Victimization (SSV, formerly Survey of Sexual Violence), National Inmate Survey (NIS), National Survey of Youth in Custody (NSYC), and National Former Prisoner Survey (NFPS). Each of these collections is independent and, while not directly comparable, they provide measures of the prevalence and characteristics of sexual assault in correctional facilities. The SSV collects information about incidents of sexual violence reported to and investigated by adult and juvenile correctional authorities and characteristics of substantiated incidents. The NIS collects allegations of sexual assault self-reported by adult and juvenile inmates in correctional facilities. The NSYC gathers self-reported sexual assault data from youth in juvenile correctional facilities. The NFPS measures allegations of sexual assault experienced during a person s last incarceration, as reported by former inmates under community active supervision

Youth for Peace: Follow On Programming - 0 views

  •  
    The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Kolkata (PAS Kolkata) seeks proposals for a project titled "Youth for Peace: Follow-on Programming." The project will bring together young leaders from India, Bangladesh, Nepal, to understand the complex variables that affect peace and violence in their communities, identify best practices of conflict resolution and see themselves as key catalysts in the peace building process. Proposals should be based on the framework of an inaugural two-day workshop with a follow on two-day workshop after a span of two-three months, and a final Youth for Peace Summit. The focus of the first workshop will be on understanding cultural contexts, the empowerment of young people to think creatively about community resilience and causes of extremism, and the promotion of grassroots campaigns to challenge violent narratives. The second workshop will help participants identify and focus on topics of individual interest which may include, but not be limited to, best practices in building "online and offline" community resilience, creating successful social media campaigns, smartphone photography, film-making and interview techniques, boosting media literacy, develop critical thinking skills, and challenging narratives with empathy and humor. The grantee is encouraged to recruit private sector collaborations, i.e. with Microsoft and Facebook, to support breakout discussions on improving youth employment prospects and using technology to counter radicalization. The project year will culminate in a South Asia Youth for Peace Summit in Kolkata to showcase how young leaders are utilizing their diverse skill sets, knowledge and networks to effectively address persistent problems of today. The grantee will also create 5 short videos using content from the workshops to amplify messaging.

Executive Excellence: A Professional Development Program for Correctional Leaders - 0 views

  •  
    The field of corrections is constantly evolving, requiring continuous learning and professional development for its administrators. With responsibility for leading complex correctional systems, Correctional Executives are charged with managing human resources, developing and implementing agency policy and procedure, engaging with internal and external stakeholders, and administering significant fiscal resources - all while supporting strong business practices and delivering results. As such, it is imperative for Correctional Executives to stay current regarding critical issues facing the field and methods for effectively addressing areas of need. It is critically important for them to keep abreast of correctional best practices and emerging issues, as well as developing and maintaining a strong association participant's network of other correctional administrators. Further, other Correctional Executives provide vital assistance in gathering information, sharing perspectives, and providing possible solutions for their associate participants. . NIC has been committed for years to improving executive performance by providing excellent leadership and management training through previous Executive Excellence programs to corrections professionals. In an effort to expand on the resources NIC has provided the field with the document Correctional Leadership Competencies for the 21st Century, a portion of which specifically addresses the role of Correctional Executive. The next step is to continue to create an increasingly vital blended training curriculum for this position and the final phases for two program presentations
