The Director of the Department of Corrections shall establish [by rule] a short-term transitional leave program. The program shall provide inmates with an opportunity to secure appropriate transitional support when necessary for successful reintegration into the community prior to the inmate’s discharge to post- prison supervision. A person convicted of a felony and sentenced to probation or to the legal and physical custody of the supervisory authority under ORS 137.124 is eligible for a reduction in the period of supervision for complying with terms of supervision, including the payment of restitution and participation in recidivism reduction programs

The maximum amount of time credits earned under this section may not exceed 50 percent of the period of supervision imposed Time credits may not be used to shorten the period of supervision to less than six months. The State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision has jurisdiction over the imposition of conditions of post-prison supervision and sanctions for violations of those conditions for a person convicted of a felony Question 3: Chapter 7 focuses on prison design, and starting on page 165 the security measures necessary to incorporate into auxiliary operations. Pick 2 of those, and list all of the security components necessary for that specific area. In addition, there is an auxiliary operation that is not covered in the book, and that is supervised work crews who perform work in community settings. List some security features that must be put in place for supervised work crews. Kitchen Services and Facilities: The physical layout of the kitchen is very important. Most kitchens use cutlery equipment such as knives. Strict monitoring of the use of culinary tools such as knives, forks, and meat saws are very important to the safety of the institution. The storage of the culinary tools needs to be in a way that they can be counted very quickly and very often. The last thing you want is an inmate to have a knife that is unaccounted for. I have seen knives that are chained to the cutting area. I have also seen them placed on a wall so that just by looking at the wall a correctional officer can see which item is missing because the outline of that item is there but the item is not. In the mess hall, the seats must be bolted or fastened to the floor if not these could become items the prisoner could use to cause havoc within the facility. Also, some facilities have a wall or partition up so inmates and food service inmate workers cannot see who is making their trays so that inmates who have a problem with each other will not know what trays they are making. Tool Shop: Much like the Kitchen the tool shop must have a way to count their tools and count them very fast so they can figure out if one is missing. These tools need to be controlled by the staff until they are handed out to inmates. These tools could be used to escape or harm another inmate. Inmates should not have free reign to these tools and should have to go through a staff

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
