I agree with you on that. I’m not sure what the standard is for the diagnosis but what my years of experience watching correctional staff/officers self destruct lends me to believe that the rate would be closer to 40-50%. Interestingly I didn’t retire because of one aspect of retirement is health, 6 out of the last 17 people who retired from our facility are dead now, that scares me that doesn’t happen often!! I have 1 out of my 6 kids still at home and she needs me there for her.

I think those numbers are low on that study.

Nebraska as well as other states now have laws directly affecting this issue. As the inmates caregivers we have all the power the lawmakers say so we are responsible not the inmates. In NE it is a felony for any staff member to become involved with inmates other than the scope of their employment. It makes sense to me after what i have experience since 1881.Even when an accusation is determined to be unfounded the staff member will always still be suspect. No wonder 13% of Correctional Officers/staff suffer from some level of PTSD (Canadian study).

This just came to me. How is it that when an inmate tries to establish a relationship with a staff member, they get a ticket and put in seg but if they actually get past trying and do have a relationship with a staff member, they now become a victim?

We wouldn’t need it if we just turned them into unics.

You know it’s coming! Let the National Curriculum and Training Institute (NCTI) assist you.

Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders: From NCTI In Partnership With the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA).

The standards adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) relating to the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) will require criminal justice agencies to provide extensive training to staff, volunteers, and auxiliary personnel. This applies to all criminal justice agencies housing juvenile and adult offenders, including adult and juvenile probation residential facilities, parole and community corrrections facilities, lockups, jails, and prison agencies. Additionally the new standards will require agencies to adopt policies regarding zero tolerance, incident investigations, appropriate screening, and more.

NCTI’s Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders Workshop and Facilitator Certification Training address the staff training standards adopted by the Department of Justice, and provides agencies with prevention and identification strategies to reduce incidences of sexual misconduct.
