Director of SUCPS & HMP Manchester staff invited to visit New Jersey State Correctional Training Academy

Dr. Elaine Crawley, Director of SUCPS, has been invited to take a team of staff from HMP Manchester on a research visit to the New Jersey Department of Corrections Training Academy, USA. This week-long visit will provide an opportunity for prison staff from the UK and USA to share ideas and expertise with regard to prison officer training, and for Dr Crawley to collect further comparative data on the working lives of prison staff.

The UK team will be present as new recruits undergo the Training Programme for Correctional Officers; they will also make guest visits to a number of prisons in New Jersey State.
