The study investigated the cost effectiveness of the militarys corrections program i.e., confinement and rehabilitation. Research disclosed that there are no comprehensive data on the numbers of custodial and headquarters staff members employed directly in the DOD confinement system and that the disciplinary measures available to commanders are comprehensive and entirely sufficient to enforce the Uniform Code of Military Justice and remotivate the minor offender of the military. The study concludes that rehabilitation efforts in confinement are generally unsuccessful and not cost-effective. The author adds that if military offenders are in need of confinement or rehabilitation, the Army and other military services should yield to Federal agencies with those responsibilities.
