Pioneers in Corrections
In order to determine the future course, it is wise to review our past. History appears to move in parallels. The dramatic growth of Minnesota’s Corrections systems have steadily grown to accommodate the increase of the inmate population. Minnesota’s leadership, staff and programs started in the 1970s resulted in our being a model for corrections in the nation. We’ve invited six distinguished individuals who helped shape the industry, introduced ideas on how to improve the delivery of services and make Minnesota Corrections safer and one of the best in the United States.
The presenters for this workshop are a “who’s who in Corrections.” They will highlight the challenges and accomplishments over the past 40 years through their unique lens. They are our “Pioneers in Corrections” in Minnesota. We will get a federal, state and county perspective on how corrections developed and have grown to where it is today. Their stories and anecdotes are sure to be educational, enjoyable and remarkable.
