AbstractThis internship with Region I of the Arizona State Justice Planning Agency (ASJPA) began with the organization of a new operation involving the planning of a comprehensive law enforcement program for the four southern counties of Arizona, under the provisions of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968. To plan effectively, data had to be gathered regarding the existing systems of all law enforcement agencies. Next, visits were made to all of these agencies to ascertain needs and possible solutions. At that point, the three-year plan, consisting mainly of seventy-five project proposals, was written. The second half of the twenty-week internship included surveying nineteen jails and two possible new locations with in Region I. These studies were necessary statewide before ASJPA could logically allocate funds for the construction and renovation of jails. The intern also was involved in planning and executing a campaign to persuade the Arizona governor to reverse himself and allow Region I to remain as it had been constituted — the four southern counties. Finally, the intern assisted all applicants in the conversion of their project proposals to firm applications. Other types of assistance also were rendered during the internship.
