As a corrections officer, it is important to understand that the inmates in your custody have constitutional rights. It makes no difference what they are charged with or what is in their criminal history. The subject of inmate rights has evolved for more than 50 years. Correctional personnel do not have to be lawyers, but they must understand inmates’ rights and liability. This course will provide a basic, but working knowledge examination of inmates’ constitutional rights and trends in courts’ decisions that affect those rights.
This course will be a clear discussion of the need for programs in our correctional facilities. Corrections has been portrayed as a discipline where offenders are locked up and strictly controlled. But the truth is that most inmates will be released back into our community at some point. Corrections means many different things-such as incapacitation and control. But corrections also means reintegration and rehabilitation. While the offender is incarcerated, corrections staff have an opportunity to help him or her change their behavior. But the inmate has to want to change. Due to a lifestyle spanning many years of negative behavior, some inmates find it difficult to seek help. Another aspect of inmate programs that will be discussed is the benefits to correctional personnel. Inmate programs can have a positive effect on the institutional climate.
