Abstract:

The 3320th Retraining Group provides Air Force prisoners an opportunity for return to duty. This specialized treatment and training program is designed to return to duty an individual improved in attitude, conduct and efficiency, and with the ability to perform productively in the Air Force. Further, the Retraining Group is given a second mission, to return to civil life those individuals who are not deemed appropriate for further Air Force service, prepared to resume a place in society as a useful citizen. The basic concept is that of individual treatment by a specially qualified staff. The program is conducted in an atmosphere of mutual understanding where the dignity of the individual is maintained. Each individual is studied and assisted in recognizing and solving problems that relate to his previously unsatisfactory conduct. The purpose of the study is to determine if a period of incarceration in a correctional facility produces a better or worse success rate than a period of confinement at the Retraining Group.
