Six Inmates have committed suicide in the past five years at the 680 bed Erie County Holding Facility. An average NY city jail houses about 14000 inmates. With improving in prevention techniques, inmates remain twice as likely as those at lager jails to die by their own hand. The justice department’s civil rights division issued reports on six jails nationwide last year for providing standard correctional care. Four were smaller jails, housing 1500 inmates or fewer, the Erie County Holding Facility among them. New inmates arrive without medical records and lack of medication lists, which are taking upon their arrival. A quarter of deaths happened within 48hours of admission between 2000 and 2002. The most of suicide reported in the first week of custody. The correctional health experts blamed the suicides for an inadequate intake screening. The national commission on correctional health care found that there was no documentation providing that the correctional office performing correctional health care providers trained properly for medical records. They collected medical information, but often failed to record it properly on time; “The receiving screening information is not filled in the health care record in almost forty percent of the patient records reviewed,” the commissioner reported. The national correctional health report found “the facility does not have a chronic care program; treatment plans are not developed ever for inmates with illness; and progress notes are often not entered in the medical record.” Jails are not belong to the local health care safety net in New York city, Jail system includes in the Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) administered by the Department of Health and Mental Health (DOHMH)’s Divisio...

Prison: Confined, dark, and empty. Freedom is denied. Punishment is evident. Men, both guilty and innocent, are held captives within the dark corridors. Escape is possible but difficult – dangerous. If captive to for too long, the prisoner can lose his hope, his faith, his mind, himself. In Arthur Koestler’s Darkness at Noon, Nicolas Salmanovitch Rubashov is imprisoned, both physically and philosophically. Accused of treason and the attempted assassination of No. 1, Stalin, Rubashov is taken in to custody for a crime did not commit. It is during the physical imprisonment, however, that Rubashov’s enters a development, or rediscovery, of his individuality – a part of him that was long repressed for the sake of the Party. It is here that Rubashov is offered a chance of philosophical freedom.

It is important to do research on this topic because it does not only lead to the conclusion of where is violence prevalent, but focuses on other aspects as well. It focuses on the psychological, social, and sexual side of the inmate. This topic does not only focus on who has the highest rates of violence, but why does that sex have a higher rate.

Within our society today there are among many criminals, however, we don't have the capacity to lock up all criminal offenders nor do we have the money to do so. Therefore, we have organized programs that allow criminal offenders to be released back into society under certain conditions. An example of this type of program are community corrections, which are a sentencing style that depends less on traditional confinement options and centers its sentencing more on corrections resources to the community. Their overall goal is to enhance desistance from the crime and to reduce the likelihood of recidivism. In other words they want to give criminals a chance to reenter the community, under certain conditions, and to live their life crime free.
Prisons an institution designed to securely house people who have been convicted of crimes. These people are known as prisoners or inmates and are kept in an ongoing custody for a certain amount of time. The type of crime decides the length of the sentence. For some such crimes (i.e. murder) individuals may be sentenced to a lifetime imprisonment. In order for an individual to be incarcerated, they have to be accused of violating criminal law and then tried and found convicted in a jury of their peers. Then the now offender will be given a sentence for a specific punishment. Depending on the nature of the crime and whether or not it is a first offense decides if the punishment will be probation or incarceration in a prison or jail.
I am in prison. It isn't very nice. I hadn't killed anyone. I hadn't raped anyone. It isn't fair. No one understands. It isn't fair, but no one understands. I need help. No one will help me. I didn't choose my life. It wasn't even given to me, simply taken. It might have been originally shown as something pleasant, only to be a façade.
