Correctional Officer Preparedness: training designated staff to effectively meet the needs of an ever changing and ever growing corrections population

Tiffani Grant

Kropp et al (1989) found that correctional officers viewed mentally ill offenders far less favourable than other prisoners. More Recent studies have echoed this notion. Because of this, mentally ill offenders/patients are more likely to be victimized during their incarceration and/or commitment. They suffer from neglect, self-injury, stigmas, denial of rights, physical and social isolation and often do not have their complaints when they do ask for help taken seriously (Callahan, 2004). Even with the knowledge we have about the attitudes of correctional officers towards mentally ill populations, correctional officers are being asked to be play an integral role in the treatment of offenders and patients.
