How Would You Rate Your Cell Mates?

Here's an unusual use of exit interviews that even Nobscot Corporation never dreamed of.

According to this article, The Sedgwick County Jail in Wichita has begun conducting exit interviews with prisoners a few weeks prior to their release. The goal of the program according to Captain Glenn Kurtz is to assess the prisoner's needs. I'm not sure if they are talking about their needs while they are in prison, like a standard corporate exit interview, or to discuss their needs coming out of prison.

Will they ask questions like "What did you like best about staying here," "If you could change on thing about this prison, what would it be," and "How would you rate your cellmates?"

The same article also talks about using a mentoring program for the ex-convicts upon their release which sounds like a great idea to me.

That is too funny. But hey, it's good to know that the exit interview is being employed, eh?

As long as they don't ask them if they'd prefer a chocolate on their pillow at night before bedtime.:)
