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

In my country of Trinidad & Tobago we allow it and we the ERT officer has to go also. we dont take them to the burial or service but to the funeral parlour for a private viewing. i believe it is a good thing it can be time consuming and sometimes a drain on resources but i would volunteer any day because is some body mother or father or sister or brother and mostly it makes us appear humane to the inmate and the public

Topic: The Club House / Losing control

I’ve worked in the prison system for 17yrs now and i have to state that this problem is also a trend in my system in the caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. This attitude displayed by our senior staff has encouraged a sharp rise in our inmates confrontational attitude towards officers and a sharp decrease in officer’s moral. To compound the situation inmates who habitually offend against prison policy are not dealt with or are given simple warnings. When such inmates push the envelope to far and force is used. they take us to courts and usually win large amounts of money against the state why?? because no charges was ever brought against the inmate no record in his file of previous infractions and in the eyes of the court he is a model prisoner further demoralizing the entire system. I am all reformation instead of retributive prison policy. but i do believe that reformation cannot occur without retribution. spare the rod and spoil the already spoilt child Heeeeelll No!!!
