Your right we cannot fix the issues we can just treat the symptoms. It is our jobs to keep them safe and unit staff gets them programming and try to get them back on the right path. Heck all we can do is make sure they get the hard work while in the prison and hope it sets them back on track

I like what you say. A little hard work gives a young man good values and appreciation for making money.

Id be willing to bet the newer inmates are more violent due to the result of society in general. More fatherless households,economy,Government policies that does not promote working over dependence on government. There are many social issues also including more violence (raw) in the entertainment industry, idleness among the teenage group due to “child labor laws”. I remember picking beans, berries and fruit alongside migrant farm workers when I was 13, learning the value of work and achievement. I then de-tassled corn when I was in the middle teens here in the midwest. Now the government wants to cease all youths from working until they are 16. The issues are complex and can’t be solved overnight. We in corrections are the end destination for many of those children, we can’t solve the societal problems except our own families and those around us. Volunteer for mentoring, church youth groups. One program I would really like to see is more programs in churches where good hardworking men, successful in life men who can mentor and teach young impressionable youths how to BE good MEN!! As I told an inmate years ago when he was complaining how hard it was to be in prison, I stated to him (correct me if I’m wrong here): The really tough men I know are the ones going to work every day, putting a roof over their families heads, food on the table,spending time playing as well as helping with homework, taking care of business and doing it year after year until their kids grow up and do the same thing like those of us on this forum. That is a win!! To help our neighbors and showing kindness to those less fortunate and a had up, not out. If we went back to those values we had way back, we could stem this tide of violent children, one kid at a time. I apologize for getting on my soapbox, but I won’t apologize for my humble opinion.

Money funded through accreditation should be invested into training and education of officers on how to better protect themselves in open population facilities. “IBM”:http://www.ibm.com

Let me know if you find a forum of users more suited to respond to your question. I’m interested in a response to your inquiry from those at a management level.

I think one of the reasons the average offender is more violent is because the average age of offenders is younger. The majority of officers between 20-30 years old is managing offenders of the same age. I agree that the credit should go to those who are following policy and procedure, but if you just lock them up, where is the rehabilitation phase of the process? Money funded through accreditation should be invested into training and education of officers on how to better protect themselves in open population facilities.

 
Female_user xjailnurs 5 posts I am looking at NCCHC accreditation for the facility I manage. Would be interested in the pro's or con's of either organization's accreditation.
