Correspondence Course for Jailers

Washington DC: The United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons, 1951. First Edition. Complete in ten volumes.

A correspondence course for jail personnel, with each volume detailing different aspects of the job—including food, sanitation and safety, reception of new prisoners, medical and health services, supervision, prison labor, and "unusual prisoners in the jail," a broad category that discusses treatment of juvenile and women prisoners, prisoners with mental illness, prisoners with addictions to drugs and alcohol, and lesbian, gay, and intersex prisoners. Although each volume contains a short quiz at the end, the course seems to have been designed for people already employed in the carceral system.

Very Good, with side stapled wrappers. Quizzes at end of each volume have occasional pencil and ink annotations from a previous owner.
