Compose a one-page paper answering the two questions.

Promoting Direct Supervision:
You are the administrator of a new county jail with the architecture and philosophy of direct supervision. The new jail replaced a jail

built in 1912. Some of the senior staff have begun complaining to you about direct supervision. They say they don’t like to interact with

inmates. They talk about “the good old days” when inmates were “on the other side” of the reinforced glass and steel bars. There’s even

been a letter to the editor to the local newspaper complaining that the new jail doesn’t “look like a jail”.

1. What could you tell the senior staff about direct-supervision philosophy that might ease their concerns?

2. What strategies might you use to educate the public about the benefits of direct supervision?
