INPROL Practioner’s Guide – Implementing Criminal Codes and Other Legislation in Postconflict and Developing Countries

This guide has been developed in response to queries posted to the online forums of the International Network to Promote the Rule of Law, seeking specific advice and resources about best practices and lessons learned for the implementation of criminal codes and other complex criminal legislation. This guide has taken more than eighteen months to develop. A key challenge was how to combine the disciplines of law, legal drafting, and public policy development with disciplines that are well known in postconflict and developing countries, such as aid implementation, project planning, training, and change management, and how to break these down into ideas and concepts that can move among the disciplines.

Corrections Officers, perhaps more than any other profession, have the greatest need of body armor. The environments they work in can be extremely dangerous, and it is important that they remain protected. The nature of their body armor differs greatly to other professions however, as they have no need of ballistic protection. Whereas Police Officers require bullet proof vests, Corrections Officers (COs) have to be equipped with stab and spike proof vests.

An Art-Inspired Innovative Approach Changes Prisoner Behavior – A Case Study

Most criminal justice experts are skeptical when an arts-based non-profit organization claims to have developed a rehabilitation program that improves prison morale and makes prison safer…yet alone makes the population more respectful and work more cooperatively…and, seemingly impossible, helps prisoners build the life skills they need to make it on the outside.  Skeptical is an understatement!
