Staffing for Success: Establishing Core Competencies and Training Supports for Corrections and Community Supervision Staff
Informed by research, many corrections and community supervision agencies are shifting from focusing solely on containment and control to recognizing rehabilitation and recidivism reduction as core responsibilities. This shift requires a new set of considerations for staff recruitment, retention, and development so that staff and leadership have the appropriate skills to respond to the broad range of needs that may impact the likelihood that a person will reoffend. This resource was developed in partnership with the Iowa Department of Corrections (IDOC) to help corrections and community supervision agencies hire and prepare staff to provide effective reentry support. It features an adaptation of a matrix used by IDOC and examples of some of their related materials, such as a performance evaluation.
