A Design That Creates Staff & Inmate Problems
Modern cell door windows allow inmates to watch staff as they perform necessary emergency activities. Staff actions during emergencies can and have prompted violent and angry outbursts from inmates locked inside their cells. Facilities may incur property damage, additional injury, or additional unplanned use of force incidents, which may have otherwise not been necessary.
Many times uninvolved inmates locked in their cells lash out by destroying facility property. Routine staff emergency response can also prompt violent and angry outbursts from inmates locked inside their cells. Imagine the emotional anxiety associated with inmates watching crime scene investigators spend hours meticulously processing a serious assault, stabbing, suicide, or other use of force situation? Many times this can culminate in frivolous lawsuits.
