INAPPROPRIATE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN OFFENDERS AND EMPLOYEES of community-based corrections organizations have emerged as a serious issue. Among the most dangerous and destructive of these inappropriate relationships is sexual misconduct. The very nature of community corrections, with semi-autonomous employees, the increasing focus on a rehabilitative rather than the punitive model, the increase of offenders assigned to these programs, and actual allegations of sexual misconduct have raised the awareness of administrators of the need for action.
