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).

Unformatted text preview: This team manages inmates who get into fights, assault staff members, or refuse to follow orders. These are some of the ways that the prison deals with the changes that goes on. There has to be daily interaction and general management of inmates at all times and every day. This is where the classifications come in handy when the inmates first enter special facility, which are called Reception Centers or diagnostic center. The affects that secure custody has on prison is cause of the changes that occurs inside the prison. 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 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
