Topic: Letter of The Law / Prison Rape Elimination Act

The new PREA law was signed and we now have 60 days to be in compliance with a majority of the new act. On page 88, it discusses the need for an initial sexual abuse assessment, and a follow-up evaluation witin 30 days. Does anyone have a standardized form, or set of questions they use for this? Is there anything approved for use by the NIC or BOP? Thank you.

Topic: Security Central / Cell extraction

Thank you to everyone for posting. The X10 is exactly what I was looking for. Any idea where I can find them used, or cheaper? The company is asking $1,200 for the system and $500 for each cylinder of OC. That makes it a hard sell for my command staff. Thanks

Topic: The Club House / Need help finding some info!

I would contact your local law enforcement agency, or Sheriff’s Office. Policy/procedure is public information for the most part and I’m sure they’d be willing to assist on any type of safety topic

Topic: The Club House / A Rather Pissing Me Off Thing

Depending on the circumstances, our judges will sometimes furlough the inmate to funerals, or family medical emergencies. If the inmate fails to return a warrant is issued and they are charged with escape, in addition to their other charges. No maximum security inmates are afforded this opportunity, those with long criminal/warrant histories, or those with high-profile charges. I don’t agree with letting them out, under any circumstance. I understand the reasoning, but I don’t agree with it.

Topic: Security Central / Cell extraction

Lately, we have encountered inmates attempting to block their book/meal pass, and also the bottom of their doors during non-compliant cell extractions. We have many tools available such as: direct stream, fogger and hose delivered chemical agent, pepperball and taser. The issue is that the chemical agent delivery is lessened by the covering of the book pass and bottom of the door. Our hose delivery chemical is designed for extracting subjects from a vehicle, not a cell. The hose if flimsy and the metal pin doesn’t extend very far into the cell. Not to mention, I don’t want to risk an inmate grabbing it. Pepperball and taser are useless, in a live application, until cell entry is made. Watching some “Jail/Prison” shows on Discovery, I’ve seen a ramming type of device. It acts as a push bar to remove any obstruction from the book pass and then allows a good delivery area for the chemical agent. The sides of the device extend far enough that it is impossible for the inmate to pull it into the cell. I have not been to find this online and am wondering if anyone can help. Any other ideas would be useful too. Thanks

Topic: Security Central / Inmates and disposable razors

We only allow razors and nail clippers out from 0730-0900. They are inspected when handed out and returned to ensure the blade is intact. Inmates purchasing new razors submit their request with their canteen purchase. The canteen worker hands the purchased razors directly to the housing officer. Indigent razors are handled the same way.
