3 staff assaults, 2 serious, in just 2 weeks. Becoming a habit, and all SMT want to do is make sure they get their association :slst: :slst:

the prison i work in shows a clear increase in violent incidents . Gang culture customers also show an increase in numbers .Maybe these are related and a mentallity of take on one, take on all, is becoming prevallent! or maybe a rite of passage, either ways scary times ahead

association is a kpi or a kpt, makes you wonder why staff safety isn't?

prisoners seem to be knocking each other out a bit more, but not staff where i am, thankfully!

Now this is just hear say but I was told prisoners run the prisons over there, and guards are only there to stop them from leaving.. I knew someone in prison over there, and he was bad to the bone!! He had a guard under his thumb..
The prisoner paid him well to send me messages, and to let me know he was still alive, but he could NOT play well with others and that worked agains't him.. Plus there was certain things he was allowed to tell me, and he was scared of my "friend" :slst: And I guess he "the officer" had every reason to be scared of him.. But I never was.. Weird huh :slbx:

Hey Judy. Great to see you back again!

Did you ever inform anyone about that arrangement? Could I ask exactly why you were getting messages from this prisoner?

Did you ever consider the repurcussions it could have had on your own career, if it was ever found out, Judy, or would that not have been an issue with the DOC where you are? :slsh2:

Fascinating stuff!
