Making Prisons Safer: Policies and Strategies to Reduce Extremism and Radicalization Among U.S. Prisoners

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A great deal of concern has been expressed that prisoner radicalization poses a high probability threat to the safety of the United States. Recently completed research finds, however, that the actual probability is modest, although certainly above zero. The reasons for a modest probability are fourfold: order and stability in U.S. prisons have been achieved during the buildup period; prison officials have successfully implemented efforts to counter the “importation” of radicalism; correctional leadership has infused anti-radicalization into their agencies; and inmates’ low levels of education decrease the appeals of terrorism. The threat of terrorism coming out prison is known to be above zero because of a nearly executed terrorist plot hatched in a state prison. The central policy proposal is the need for continued and, in some cases, greater vigilance against the threat of prison based terrorism. The prison environment permits a great deal of information to be collected on the activities and, more difficult to detect, planned activities of inmates after they are released. This requires the attentive observation of staff, collection of information from inmates, and efforts at different levels of a correctional agency to assemble, collate, and assess information.
