2020 – 04 – safer custody
Safer Custody: improved…?
Whilst you will never eradicate violence – inside or outside prison – there seems to have been an improvement from earlier on last year. In fact, I wrote 3 blogs (2019-30, 31 & 32) which I’ve been waiting to post at the right time. I also realised, having re-read the blogs, that 2019-33 started “after those last 3 blogs…” – I go on to talk about ‘humanity reminders’; it probably didn’t make sense with 2019-27, 28 & 29 but it will with the next 3 blogs.
This experiment in displaying how many days a wing has gone without violence is interesting; although, we’ll have to wait and see if the overall figures have improved. Nonetheless, 2 wings have made it to 30+ and 40+ days without violence. This wing and the other wing are still below the 30 day marker having both had violent incidents recently; the other wing had a couple of serious violent incidents.
A word of advice: don’t read the next 3 blogs whilst eating!
Be happy, be safe and be kind.
