  • Scope and Contents

    This series contains correspondence between NISA and judges, legislators, public officials, corrections administrators, probation departments, lawyers, students, teachers, interested individuals, and other criminal justice organizations. Much of the correspondence is routine letters requesting information from NISA, however, the correspondence also includes information on a number of topics. Some of these topics include: court ordered community service in Georgia; in-house arrest procedures using electronic monitoring in Collier County, Florida; restitution program problem areas in Massachusetts; information about a NISA workshop for criminal justice officials in North Carolina; felony sentencing guidelines in Oregon; a summary report on the Community Service Work Program in Wisconsin; bills on sentencing guidelines, the death penalty, restitution, and plea bargaining from the Michigan Senate Majority Counsel; and a proposal for the Development of a Health Services Quality Assurance Program prepared by the Tennessee Department of Corrections. There is also a small amount of international correspondence mostly with individuals and organizations in Israel.
