The purpose of classifying investigation work is to widely collect the information of the inmate who has just been sent to the prison. The methods include investigation and testing. Initial corrective treatments will be suggested and planned based on the results for the reference for the discipline unit. By reviewing and modifying the corrective treatment, the corrective treatment will become more complete and its function can be exercised. The follow-up investigation about life and work status after the prisoner is released can assist the released prisoners to live on their own and blend into society. It can prevent the released prisoners from committing crimes again to maintain public security.
(I) Classification of the Investigation Work
Holding prison-entering workshops, implementing direct investigations and indirect investigations, performing psychological tests, and creating digital image files. Analysis and suggestions will be made based on the information acquired in the investigation, and the corrective treatment for individual inmates will be planned. When the inmate is about to be released, a review and release transition workshop will be performed and held before the release. The after-care service will be provided based on the inmate’s needs and will.
(II) Cooperating With the Tainan Association, Taiwan After Care Association to Hold Caring Events
We cooperate with the Tainan Branch, Taiwan After Care Association, Tainan Employment Center, Yunlin, Chayi, Tainan Regional Branch, Workforce Development Agency, Ministry of Labor, and personnel from the Legal Aid Foundation to promote after care service, employment information, and vocational training and legal aid for the inmates every month. We hold employment promotion workshops throughout the entire prison regularly to cultivate the inmates’ correct job-searching concept and prepare the inmates to return to the workplace. We refer the inmate who is about to be released and interested in finding a job to the local Employment Center. This will help the inmate to find a job and return to the workplace successfully.
