contraband such as alcohol, drugs, or even candy (Worley et al. 2011). There are also cases where sexual harassment occurs between inmates and guards. Prisons undergo huge lawsuits when cases of illegal activities for prison staff do occur, the guards can also undergo criminal prosecution. Although there has been little research on guard deviance; there has been a lot of talk on guard subculture, this subculture provides guards with rationalizations that allow them to engage in unethical and illegal behaviors during the course of their eight-hour shifts (Worley et al. 2011). Per Worley (2011), severe beatings against inmates will gain you respect, status, or even promotion as a young officer. Correctional officers and inmates often “participate in inappropriate relationships, this would be defined as relationships between them two or with family members of the inmates, this behavior can jeopardize the security

It all started back in 1929, the depression era. The stock market had recently crashed and people were desperate for hope. Unemployment was at its all time high, more than one fourth of the U.S population was unemployed and gradually increasing. At the time of when the depression first began, President Herbert Hoover was in power. During the depression people would wait in long lines just for a few bites to eat. Volunteers would hand out food to the hopeless and hungry people, these were commonly known as Soup kitchens in “Hoovervilles” . The soup kitchens and the help efforts that were in place during the depression were named after the president of the time. The struggles did not get any better until the start of the CCC, The Civilian Conservation Corp.
Prisons are fundamentally designed for the functions of law and order, and many guards seemed to act in
At any given time, a single corrections officer, can expect to be outnumbered by upwards of 400 inmates (Conover, 2011). It can be chilling to work in the midst of hundreds of inmates, some of which initiate attacks and inappropriate relationships. However, other issues have impacted the psychological health and physical safety of the staff. Detrimental factors have included heavy workloads, the prisons physical structure, and a lack of support from both peers and superiors. Each workplace issue has been in addition to role problems, specifically role ambiguity and role conflict (Schaufeli & Peeters, 2011). It is believed that anyone of these undesirable facets of prison should be enough to deter the public from attempting to enter such
In the post-civil war era until World War One lived many elites who prided themselves on their shoddy and commercialized wealth, which can also be said about the current political climate existent in America today. In the era termed “The Gilded Age,” by one Mark Twain, there also thrived a great deal of political corruption due to huge amounts of money that existed in the economy, similarly to our current political climate. Due to an influx of immigrants that localized to urban areas such as Chicago there were high concentrations of people in relatively small areas creating problems for the welfare of people (“Gilded Age Scandal and Corruption”). As it is the government’s responsibility to aid those in need, it was still not enough for many. In causality, organizations were created to fill the gap between government could provide and what the people needed. These organizations did things like “giving material assistance to new arrivals, got people jobs, provided necessities for families in distress,
People need resources or have items in their houses that need to be fixed such as sinks, bathrooms, roofs, and more, but also need money for items such as medicine, electricity bills, food, and clothes. Soon their small problems become big problems due to postponing their problems to use the money to provide food and medicine. The government only does so much to help people in poverty as with the TANF program in Washington D.C., so it is necessary for churches and non-profit organizations to step in and help people in poverty.
While institutions are exempt, individual officers can be held civilly liable for violations. Consequently, this can result in officers becoming hesitant while performing their duties and second guess their instincts. Appropriately, “The Court in a series of decisions spelled out standards to which correctional officials must adhere in a broad range of prison and jail activities” (Hanson & Daley, pp. 14, 1994). These standards provide a foundation on which institutions can base policy and procedures for correctional officers to maintain and follow. “Standards were established to govern medical treatment; physical security and privacy; discipline; living conditions, such as diet, exercise, and visitation; physical conditions; communication; and access to the courts” (Hanson & Daley, pp. 14, 1994). Ultimately, 1983 suits guide the evolution of institutional policy and procedures and so long as officers abide by policy there should be no fear of
