Cedric Easter wanted to ask Carlson of the Bureau of Prisons if it would be possible to receive GED diplomas and other training certificates.
MARCH 18, 1980, MEETING CONVENES IN DOWNTOWN WASHINGTON The Board meets with director Norm Carlson and some of his staff. Carlson reported that there were presently 26,600 inmates in the federal population. He stated another 2,500 are presently in CTCs. Carlson stated that this figure has dropped somewhat but the future is still uncertain. Indicated that they were closing McNeil Island as of October 1, 1980. Also stated that Atlanta is scheduled to be closed by September of 198-4, but may close sooner. Stated that they were not moving forward too quickly on Atlanta in case the Attorney General changed his emphasis on going after white collar offenders. Stated that there were three new federal institutions at various stages of planning or construction. This includes Lake Placid and two other institutions in the Phoenix, Arizona area. .Indicated that when completed this should end all major construction for the decade. In response to Mandsager's question, Carlson indicated that he would look into MRs coming out without notice and delays in receiving certificates.
Carlson also stated that they were insisting on better services from CTCs and were hoping to weed out some of the bad ones. He admitted that some of the CTCs are just plain "ripoffs". In response to Lavandera's question, Carlson stated that there is no move of foot for federal CTCs throughout the country. Kurd questioned exactly what CPO1s duties were and requested a position paper. Carlson stated he would follow through on this. Carlson did state that it was his opinion that the attorney general interest will remain with organized crime, white collar offenders and public corruption. 12 In response to Thomas' question, Norm Carlson indicated that he has not met with Bill Cohan since his appointment to Chief. Did point out, however, that there was always good communications between the probation division and the Bureau of Prisons. Dean questioned Carlson concerning any possible policy they may have which would restrict the sending of classification summaries to the probation offices.
Carlson stated they had no such policy and would have J. D. Williams look into. The Board did point out to Carlson that there were no serious problems with CPOs, at least to our knowledge at this time.
Carlson thought this was a good idea and indicated they would get on it. Carlson advised that the voluntary surrender program was working out very well. He did point out that it was used rather "spotty" around the country. With respect to YCA cases, Carlson indicated that some court rulings have gone against them and they may be forced to eventually segregate all YCA commitment cases. He stated that this would result in changing four of our present institutions into strictly YCA facilities. Carlson advised that there was plenty of money for CTC placements and that was not a problem at this time.
Carlson stated he was opposed to this policy. Pointed out that they used furloughs instead. With respect to homosexual rapes in the institution, Carlson stated that this was not the result of a sex drive but was rather a put down on other inmates. For this reason, he felt that conjugal visits would not reduce the incidents of rape. He also pointed out that approximately two-thirds of all inmates are unmarried and this could create a problem if married inmates were permitted to be with their spouses. Carlson stated the only solution to that problem would be to permit prostitutes in the institution and he was not quite ready for that either. Thomas questioned Carlson concerning any problems in receiving funding for attending ACA conventions (Carlson is the president).
Carlson stated that there was a funding cut, however, all their wardens would be attending the next convention and in addition many more Bureau of Prisons personnel from the west coast (meeting is on west coast) will also be permitted to attend.
Norman Carlson, then Director ..., 6 Dec 2013 [cached]
Norman Carlson, then Director of the Bureau of Prisons wrote me in 1992 (I met him as he did consulting work, having retired, on overcrowding at the jail where I worked). He stated "the Bureau of Prisons was not told by anyone in the Department of Justice or the White House how to handle the situation."
