Supermax prisons and the Constitution : liability concerns in the extended control unit by William C Collins( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extended control units (ECUs), or "supermax" prisons, house a prison system's most dangerous inmates. Because of the restrictions that go with the extraordinarily high level of security such inmates require, these facilities sometimes function at the limits of what is constitutionally acceptable and are, therefore, fre quent targets of inmate litigation. This monograph is intended to help prisons operate ultra-high-security facilities in a way that minimizes liability in litigation. The monograph covers the background of supermax prisons and related litigation, and it takes a close look at case law, prison policies and practices, and "lessons learned" in operational areas that give rise to litigation.--Abstract, page v

Classification of high-risk and special management prisoners : a national assessment of current practices by James Austin( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although high-risk and special management inmates constitute a small percentage of the national inmate population, a disproportionate amount of staff and agency resources must be allocated to them to maintain prisoner safety and institutional security. Recognizing correctional administrators' need for more effective means of identifying potential sources of problems in the inmate population and more proactive strategies for addressing the issues associated with these inmates, the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) funded a project to advance the state of knowledge about program and policies that identify, classify, and manage high-risk and special management prisoners. This report presents the project's findings
Racial disparities in the criminal justice system by Joan Petersilia( Book )

7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 2-year study compared the treatment of white and minority offenders at key decision points in the criminal justice processing of approximately 1,400 male prison inmates in California, Michigan, and Texas. Study data came from the California Offender-Based Transaction Statistics which tracks offender-processing from arrest to sentencing, and the Rand Inmate Survey which yielded data from self-reports of approximately 1,400 male prison inmates in California, Michigan, and Texas. Prior research on discrimination in the criminal justice system produced controversial and contradictory findings. Section II discusses the problems with this research and briefly describes the data and methodology. Section III describes the workings of the criminal justice system and identifies racial differences in case-processing revealed in some of the data. Section IV analyzes more of the data for racial differences in crime-commission rates and the probability of being arrested. Section V looks at racial differences following the imposition of a court sentence. Section VI explores racial differences in offender characteristics, specifically: crime motivation, weapon use, and prison violence. Section VII summarizes the findings and presents the conclusions of the study. Although the case-processing system generally treated offenders similarly, there were racial differences at two key points. Minority suspects were more likely than whites to be released after arrest; however, after a felony conviction, minority offenders were more likely than whites to be given longer sentences and to be put in prison instead of jail. There were no statistically significant differences that implied discrimination against minorities in corrections

Following an executive summary are six chapters : introduction; classification issues for women offenders--the literature; NIC Prisons Division--womens classification initiatives (e.g., National Assessment of Current Practices for Classifying Women Offenders and Working With Correctional Agencies to Improve Classification for Women Offenders); building blocks to effective classification of women offenders; addressing classification issues that require systemic change; and future steps. There are also two appendixes : descriptions of seven states women's classification initiatives (Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Nebraska, West Virginia, and Wisconsin); and sample initial and reclassification instruments developed by Colorado and Idaho
