PRISON ENVIRONMENT 2 Prison Environment I would define prison environment as a cramp, dangerous, and confined place without privacy. This is a place where privacy is a deliberate punishment; this is done so the inmate is never alone. There are a number of places where an inmate will always be and they are the yard, their cell, or the common housing area. This is a place where there are many rules, gangs, customs, and etiquette to abide by. If an inmate doesn’t want to get hurt or killed then they should respect and abide by the rules. The management and custody influence the prison environment by the classification or cliques that they use. The prison form teams to solve everything that the inmates can throw at them. The teams are S.O.R.T. (Special Operations Response Team.), C.E.R.T. (Corrections Emergency Response Team), Unit team management, and S.R.T. (Special Response Team).

Since inside the prison in changes every day they have to come up with new ways to stop things from happening. I think that the only way secure custody can be improved is if the system stays one step above the criminals. PRISON ENVIRONMENT 3 Reference Foster, B. (2006). Corrections: The Fundamentals .
