Perks in Prison

The government vowed to crackdown on perks in prisons, right? Got that? A crackdown on perks in prison! Lying, good for nothing (insert your own words here).

The inmates of a prison in Kent have had personal telephones istalled in their cells. There are plans to extend the scheme to other prisons.

Dave, me lad, is that what you call a crackdown on perks in prison? Why not issue every prisoner with a key so they can come and go as they please? Take my advice Dave, start visiting your local job centre, cos it's for sure you're gonna be out of a job come the next election. :huh:

What it boils down to, is the fact that Prison Officials are totally incapable of preventing items (drugs, mobiles etc) being smuggled into prisons. So instead of upgrading security (eg glass seperation from visitors as in the US), they go the other way and pander to them - bit like the wider world really! :wink:

Agree, but new one's have been built and some are private sector operated. I rarely look to the US for examples of good practise, but I watched a prog about one of their new prisons, which is totally run from a control centre, using CCTV and remote controlled gates; thus the prisoners rarely come in physical contact with the warders, let alone the public. :shock:

Old or modern people will still try to smuggle stuff into prisoners unless the officers take a more proactive role in preventing them. And it really is quite easy to prevent any visitor from smuggling drugs into prison. All it takes is one sniffer dog to walk down the queue of visitors waiting to go in at visiting times. Those dogs can sniff without fail if someone is carrying drugs of any quantity. How much time and effort would the process take? Almost negligable.

All prisoners should be subjected to the most miserable time possible while they are in prison. Buckets and slopping out should be brought back and save us money..... 1 hour a week walk and NO tv, NO gyms, NO libraries and open university courses....

The price of a tin of dog meat and a few biscuits per day. :blink:

 

 

That will do for the prisoners, but what about the dogs?? :unsure: :unsure:

Dog training and a dog for each prison on an already over stretched budget, we love to lock people up over here but we don't like to pay for it

 

Damn the expense! Anyway stop giving the inmates tvs and telephone and the rest of it and that will cover the cost of a few dogs and get the prisoners working sewing mail bags etc., that can be sold to cover the cost. Or maybe better still let the stupid judge sentence them to a stay at a holiday camp instead of prison. That should work out cheaper.
