Shift Happens


Someone forwarded me this video called "Shift Happens" put together by an unknown on youtube. It describes exactly where we are headed in the globalization and information age. Talk about eye opening. You'll immediately want to forward the link to 5 co-workers and maybe even your kids. Course it's set to great Scottish Highlander music which doesn't hurt, but it will completely floor you. I wonder how this will impact the corrections workforce in 10 years? see post with video

Contraband Control in Prison

by Tracy E. Barnhart

I have seen a consensus all across the country about institutional contraband and the desire to stop it. Especially stopping the introduction of cellular telephones being difficult to trace. You will never totally eliminate the contraband unless you automate personnel at your facilities with robots and totally take away the human factor. As long as there are people to bewilder, manipulate and intimidate there will always be contraband. full story

Mandated CPR On Inmates: Good Or Not So Good?


Frank11Echo: Ohio DRC has recently mandated that CO’s learn CPR. They are also mandating CO’s perform CPR on inmates if the situation warrants. Is this good or not? Several CO’s where I work say they will NOT perform CPR on an inmate, regardless of the consequences. Other states already have a CPR mandate in place and have accepted it as a job requirement, but it seems that it’s always difficult to get the rank and file to accept ANYTHING new. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
