National report on safety and abuse in prisons

A national report on prison conditions has been published focusing on four problem areas: "dangerous conditions of confinement — violence, poor health care, and inappropriate segregation — that can also endanger corrections officers and the public; the challenges facing labor and management; weak oversight of correctional facilities; and serious flaws in the available data about violence and abuse." See the website devoted to the report by the Commission on Safety and Abuse in America's Prisons.
