Pagination or Media Count:
This report presents an analysis of the Navys need for Correctional Custody Unit CCU facilities. The perceptions of Navy leaders were collected, the programs effectiveness in retraining young offenders was examined, the potential effects of CCU closure on the Navy disciplinary system were investigated, and the costs and benefits of the CCU program were assessed. Data used for these analyses reflected CCU use between May 1991 and May 1993. Navy leaders indicated that the CCU was an effective tool for retraining the young, immature offender. The majority of commanding officers believed that the CCUs should remain open. Other analyses indicated that 1 the program was applied to the population for which it was intended, 2 most sailors retrained at CCU facilities over the past 2 years are still on active duty, and 3 the net value provided to the Navy by successful awardees was substantial. The financial benefits realized from the CCU program seem to be greater than the costs of program maintenance. Corrections, Retraining, Cost-benefit analysis.
